January is quickly approaching, and you know what that means: year-end lists and retrospectives galore! We’d be shirking our responsibilities as bloggers if we didn’t join in, so in keeping with our December tradition, take a look at this list of the best education parodies of 2014! We’ve scoured the web to find videos by teachers, about teachers, parodies breaking down historical inaccuracies, humorous tunes by parents, and so much more.

For even more viral video fun, YouTube’s Rewind team has done a great job of recapping the year’s most popular YouTube uploads. Make sure you also take a look at our best-of lists from 2012 and 2013.
