Viral Video Clip: Texas Student Critiques Teacher (VIDEO)
A viral YouTube video prompted a Texas school district to release a statement. The footage recorded on a cell phone camcorder shows a high school student verbally scolding his teacher.
During the video, student Jeff Bliss, 18, is shown telling his teacher how to do her job. His soapbox rant includes his opinion of what he believes the teacher should do to reach her students.
As reported by News 8, the whole incident began when Bliss asked the teacher why students were not allowed more time to prepare for the STAAR test. STAAR stands for the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness educational tool used to assess students. When the teacher asked him to stop complaining, that's when the conversation escalated and the teacher told him to leave her class.
"If you would just get up and teach us instead of handing 'em a packet yo, there's kids in here that don't learn like that... they need to learn face-to-face," Bliss said in the video which has now gone viral.
Further criticizing her teaching style, "You want kids to come to class? You want them to get excited? You gotta come in here and make them excited. You want a kid to change and start doing better? You gotta touch his freakin' heart," Bliss said.
Bliss' mother is also a teacher at another large school district located in North Texas. After dropping out school for one year, Bliss discovered the values of having an education. As demonstrated in his YouTube rant, Bliss has a newfound passion for learning.
"The district is aware of the video and we are currently addressing the situation. As a district with a motto of Engaging Hearts and Minds we focus on building positive relationships with students and designing engaging work that is meaningful," the Duncanville Independent School District said in a statement about the viral video.
