    1. Mr. Barry Browner that was not the school for you. I am sure you will find another position at a better school and your previous school will regret this knee jerk reaction to something so petty. As bad as we need male teachers in the classroom we hear about a system dismissing what is probably a great teacher over this petty crap but will keep a teacher that’s been suspected of inappropriate relationships with the students. SMH

    2. A teacher sharing a bit of fun with his students should be commended not fired. The CEO of my international company, participated in our Harlem Shake video. It was a great morale boost. I would say the only things the kids should not have done was dance on the desk – other than that – really??? Fired teacher – ain’t nobody got time for that!!!

    3. I bet this teacher has a better rapport with this classroom and can get through to the “troubled teens” in the videos that most other teachers. That is the problem these days….adults/educators do not try to bridge the gap and connect with the kids of today. I don’t see anything wrong, and don’t think he should have been disciplined. Weigh the pros and cons and balance them…..wait…….what are the cons???

      • Browner was fighting a staff member. This is how the youtube video became a problem.I would like to know,why terminate him because of a video when you can terminate him for fighting.
