Education is the key to a better life, a better future and a better outlook for this rock we call home. However, governments worldwide continue to offer their populace subpar education. Sometimes it’s an attempt to ensure the populace is ignorant enough to keep voting an ineffectual government back in, sometimes it’s a just an effectual government being ineffectual. This American teen is on the pulse of the importance of education and lets his teacher know it…
Firstly my blood boils at how apathetic and unresponsive this teacher is. Instead of commending a child who wants to learn, she kicks him out because it would take more effort to teach him. To you Miss, there is a special place in hell reserved.
Brighter things though, Jeff Bliss’, the student in the video remark “If you would just get up there and teach them insetead of handing them a packet, Yo!” Echoes within me and reminds me of a quote from a truly TRULY great man Nelson Mandela, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." Although he may be a little less eliqunt, this kid knows how important his education is going to be for him.
To you Jeff Bliss, awesome name by the way, we bestow our highest honour, GUTS!
