A bizarre video of Chicago public school teachers seemingly being addressed as though they were young children in a professional development training session has turned heads, right as some teachers prepare to put their jobs on the line to boycott the standardized exam addressed in the training session.

The one-minute video, posted to YouTube in mid-February, picked up steam last week when it was featured by the Washington Post’s Valerie Strauss and given a signal boost by education policy analyst Diane Ravitch and Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis.

The clip shows teachers being told to repeat after a female consultant as part of “a professional development for teachers of Saturday ISAT preparation classes,” according to the video’s description.
