Actually you cannot judge the teacher by seeing one video and by listening to the rantings of a disrespectful student, Perhaps the teacher is being lackadaisical about her teaching, however the student is wrong in pointing it out in front of the class, because he's undermining her authority, sounds like this kid a serious lesson in showing respect, not in being boisterous.

Yes. You shall not talk out of line.


Being a girl has nothing to do with it.

I miss the days when people can beat their kids to death, and also this brat needs to know there is nothing wrong with the teacher, school or the education system it's just him and his laziness. Right?

1. I don't care. You can't tell sarcasm on the internet anyway.
2. Because I can.
4. I don't have a third thing to say.

I'm saying he should have waited until class was over and calmly asked for help or if in class been polite and and asked for help, If he didn't receive it, he could have complained to his student counsel, or the counselor or even the the vice principle, If the kid is starved for help from that teacher, maybe he can transfer to another class.

3. Look, I found a third thing to say. It is: maybe I do, is there a problem? Maybe I don't, are you disappointed?

I am not sure if this has been posted already and am unaware if this is a duplicate.

It is a pretty viral video, so..

Anyways, what are your thoughts on this?

"Jeff Bliss, a High School student gives a lesson to his teacher at Duncanville"

The original video where Bliss speaks up.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQ2VAV3HYdU

The interview with Bliss.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQ2VAV3HYdU



The problem:

1. Not everybody learns the same, the school can't cater to every kind of learning style.

2. Not enough classroom time.

3. Lack of funds, underpaid teachers. They work beyond the school day grading papers & planning classes....now they have to work in their off time to come up with lectures/presentations like a college professor?.....Then pay them like one.

4. I've seen the students in most high schools....most (not all) aren't there to learn......

5. Class time gets eaten up dealing with disciplinary problems

6. Crappy textbooks, crappy curriculum they are forced to use/teach with

7. Teaching for the tests only so the school can get money

8. Money for the school is #1. Actually teaching the students......is it even in the top 5?

9. Poor student to teacher ratio.

10. Not enough funds for school supplies. My kid actually had a couple of classes where they couldn't take the textbook home (not enough so had to share with other classes). The teacher actually expected them to study & do the homework in class, or try to memorize the textbook and try to do the homework at home from memory! Needless to say all the kids in that course did really badly....except my kid. That's because I told him to get me the name of the book, the publisher, & the year, and I bought him a used one off the internet in like new condition, for only a few dollars (Why can't schools do that?). I did that with other classes that gave no textbook each subsequent year. When he's done with them, I'm thinking of donating them to the school.....maybe.

I agree with the kid completely. I am lucky that most of my high school teachers were pretty good.

When my kid has problems in school, I help them, or find someone who can (teacher or student tutor, etc.). I saw the interview. His mom is a teacher. Why didn't he get help from her?

Although what he said was true, in my day we didn't yell at our elders, nor did we use curse words (or near curse words) in their presence. When I was in high school you could get suspended or paddled for that. It was considered disrespectful.
