Too Many Packets!?

Watch a long-haired kid get kicked out of class but not before berating the teacher for her lackadaisical teaching methods.  This went viral last week. Or, click below where you can also watch a followup video in which the kid explains a bit about what was going on. What do you think?

  • Thanks for posting the links to the video. I hate to say it but Jeff had a point and you could tell in part how his social studies teacher was a very passive teacher. The tip off is she never even got up off her chair when the student challenged her with his rant. So it appears she ordered the student out of the room without any attempt at all of entering the student's space to calm him down, apparently he raised questions about test preparation time before he was ordered out of the room.

    Based on what I know about class room management the teacher appeared completely indifferent whether or not Jeff stayed in the room. She expressed this by her complete demeanor in the video. This reflects not only on the teacher but on the discipline process at the school.

    Apparently kids are kicked out of rooms like this regularly at this school so for the teacher it was just another day at the job. I will be honest if there was a video of any of the times I tossed out students at Calumet High in the time I worked at the school before it was converted to a charter I think I wouldn't have been sitting down watching like the teacher in the video was. I don't recall a time that I tossed out a student when I wasn't disappointed in myself to some degree, but none the less sometimes it has to be done.

    Overall it was very sad to see that video and hear the student's interview. Since he had dropped out once, had a mother who was a teacher, he became particularly incensed at teachers who he believed were indifferent. As far as rants go Jeff was pretty mild compared to how some kids went off that I taught over by 79th and May.

  • Teacher may have wanted to keep her desk between herself and 25 year old Jeff. Her voice and demeanor may be small out of concern for her own safety.
    But Jeff does seem.easy to engage. It's easy to project a better adult reaction to a fairly mild situation.
