update: the video (actually, the whole site) seems to be working on and off. In case it's not working while you're reading this post, here's a synopsis: The video seems to be a promotional pitch for "stall day" aimed at kids in a high school. They show a classroom with a teacher teaching when two kids raise their hands and gleefully yell "it's stall day!". They then proceed to dump a bunch of pennies on their teacher's desk and make remarks as their teacher proceeds to count and roll the pennies instead of teaching class.
A few things caught my eye in this video:
1.) Students can donate very little money and waste a lot of class time (how long would it take you to roll, say, 200 pennies?)
2.) The glee the students take in stopping class is troublesome. I would've felt the same way when I was a teenager, but adults have a responsibility to teach kids that learning is a reward -- not a punishment -- if they want them to succeed in school and in life. And actions speak louder than words.
3.) In some schools, allowing the kids to tell the teachers what to do for a few minutes might be a cute idea. But in many schools it's not. In schools already overrun with discipline problems (i.e. run by the kids), empowering kids to treat their teacher like dirt for a few minutes isn't going to help the situation.
4.) I'm even more convinced that this is the second-worst school fundraising idea I've ever heard.
