OCONOMOWOC, WI (WTAQ) - A middle school teacher in Oconomowoc was put on leave after his bosses learned that he ranted online against his profession.
Sixth-grade teacher Michael Krill has been away from the Nature Hill Intermediate School since last Friday.
Milwaukee's WITI-TV said his principal considered Krill one of the finest teachers at their school -- until now. The station posted a seven-minute audio clip of Krill, in which he said he gets criticized for, "pushing the limits of education" while other teachers get by with "minimal work."
Krill called the educational system "boring" and a "waste of time," and he added, "I've hated school since I was a little boy."
Krill said he wanted to lead a Christian life, but added that Christian schools are generally no better than the public schools.
For some reason, Krill said both Christians and non-Christians are, "too scared to say the truth." His podcast has been removed from its original location.
