Buffalo teacher makes anti-Common Core rap video

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) - A rap artist and teacher from Buffalo known as “MC ZiLL” has released a song against Common Core.

MC ZiLL, better known as Bennett High School teacher Jeff Grossi, talks about the problems he encounters with the education standards in his rap song “We’re Teaching.”

He says he isn’t asking for a lot, just respect and a decent paycheck, but teachers seem to be taking all the blame.

Grossi says there is a lack of resources and key positions have been cut while kids are treated like numbers when it comes to budgets.

In part of the video, Grossi is wearing a shirt that says “Common Core will destroy public education.”

The video ends with a message encouraging parents to opt out of standardized testing by visiting the website UnitedOptOut.com.
