Yep it's the teacher's fault they have to do math drills in order to pass a state mandated test or the school loses funding.

We don't know what class this was. Even if it was math, he has a point. If she's not going over the material with them, that is negligible.

I meant "negligent". Fuck.

He has every right to be pissed off. Texas ranks 49th in education spending(1), and his high school ranks in the bottom third of all high schools in the state(2). He's stuck in the worst of the worst, and being punished for understanding he deserves better than lazy teachers, cut-rate curriculums and shitty schools.

It's not the teacher's fault they have to do it, but it's the teacher's fault that she doesn't care.

This kid is OK by me.

Look, kid, I'm not paid enough to give two shits. You'll get it when you're older.

That poor teacher doesn't need a lecture from some scruffy dweeb in bright red shoes.

What she needs is a date for Hearts & Hooves Day. So shut up and get to finding one, kid, one to really make her heart soar

5 for perfect wigger arm-movement techniques.

Cellphone makers need to eliminate portrait mode altogether when recording video.

Duncanville is about a half hour from Grapevine, where I live. If it's anything like the ISDs around it, the only thing anyone (minus this student) gives a fuck about is football.

Ah, the rural South. Can't wait to leave.

I remember my high school lit teacher booting anyone from the class anytime they said something slightly disagreeable. We'd read some essay and then have a discussion which always meant someone getting thrown out.

I thought it was strange at the time but looking back it seems really strange. She would get this very hurt look on her face and in a quiet and dramatic voice tell the person to please leave her class.

I wouldn't blame the teacher for sounding like they were beaten down over their career. For one, whores make more money, and secondly, this is a state that allows creationism to be taught in science class.

James Woods - 2013-05-09

True, it's not one persons fault. This kid isn't actually talking to this person, he's talking to a representative of a very broken system, and I'm glad this got recorded and is getting attention, even if it was shot in fucking portrait.

Children should be given photography classes from an early age if you ask me.

Counterpoint: my roommate at my apartment before last was a middle school teacher who refused to teach the prefab curriculum, advocated relentlessly, developed his own curriculum and after a few years he had affected major changes in the standard curriculum simply by setting an example and producing results. Of course, that was in heathen commie Boston so it's hardly the same thing.

frau_eva - 2013-05-09

Boston probably has, like, a union though. Retaliatory firings happen here. A lot of local career teachers just quit after more than twenty years and went to the media about how exactly Jindal's education plan has been going. If you want to make changes, you have to know you'll commit career seppuku.

This kid has an entire adult life ahead of him to spend in various mediocre social systems that do not give a shit. The silver lining is that, once you're an adult and out of K-12, you get to pick and choose which ones are worth wasting your time.

kingarthur - 2013-05-10

Picking and choosing based on what you can afford to pick and choose that is.

Frustration vs. Indifference... FIGHT!

Indifference wins... banality.
