Student Vs. Teacher (2019)

Student Vs. Teacher (2019)


Your son is a failure He’s barely passing my class and with grades like this. I’m just not sure what kind of future he’s gonna have What do you have to say for yourself? You’re supposed to graduate this year Listen to Mr johnson What kind of future do you think you’re gonna have? With all due respect Don’t call me a failure Failure is an event, not a person in fact And you talk about the future Mr. Johnson, But you’re not preparing us for that Excuse me? Just listen to what I’m saying This should be good Would you agree that In the future Most careers will become automated? Yeah… So? So the people who succeed will have to be Curious Innovative with resilient to adapte to new changes What’s your point ? My point is, the focus in this school is not on that it is on that it is on regurgitating information
and tests taking And that’s just real… but in today’s world creativity is the most
important leadership skill. Oh, that’s how you feel..?? you feel you don’t have to believe me
but maybe you will believe the 1,500 executives who recently said creativity
is the most important leadership skill see pretty soon no one will be hired
because of what they know because who cares what you know or if you’ve
memorized the fact we’ve got Google and Siri for that in the future people will
be hired because of what they can do with their knowledge
can they creatively solve real-world problems not just follow instructions or
directions and Bubble in a multiple-choice questions so mom that’s
why I’m stressed cuz these robotic tasks we learned in school should stop because
no one can do a robot’s job better than a robot
billionaire founder of Alibaba Jack Ma said that we should not compete with
artificial intelligence but instead focus on developing unique human
intelligence mr. Johnson drills are for teeth not the human mind so these
repetitive knowledge-based tasks we must leave behind or in the future you’re
gonna find a lot of people graduating out of your class right into the
unemployment line see many top companies today don’t look at grades Mon that old
way is expiring Google has been quoted as saying GPAs are worthless criteria
for hiring founder of Tesla Elon Musk agrees so I say this with unease and
sorrow if you continue to teach today as you taught yesterday then you rob us
students of tomorrow mr. Johnson I’m gonna keep it real with you
sometimes sitting in your class is tough I’m constantly thinking that if I don’t
look up at the clock maybe it’ll speed up so I listen to you do my work and pay
attention feeling like an hour had to have gone by but it was only three
minutes so if you wonder why we’re bored in class look you want to get a kid to
hate reading give them this a school textbook and some people think it’s all
falling and that hurts me they say you can lead a horse to water but you can’t
make them drink and to that I say no firstly you could put salt in that
horse’s hay and make them thirsty and if you bring joy in your classroom and you
can make any bad student, nerdy as he or she discovers the beauty of truly
learning mr. Johnson I mean no disrespect you have the most important
job on this planet you build create and save lives but if you really care about
my future like you say then you have to fully commit and ask yourself honestly
how do I prepare a child for future that doesn’t yet exist here’s a hint the
answer is not found in this it’s using this and this see in the future we would
need more passion and compassion people with inspired hearts and wisdom to
uplift this planet and mom I love you but can I be real go ahead you want to
know one of the biggest factors for childhood success it’s not IQ its family
meals and we haven’t had one of those in a while
see I know sometimes you don’t feel proud cuz I may not be a straight-a
student but I’m not stupid these tests maybe 70%
of my grade but there’s zero percent of my future but don’t worry
I’ll pass this class and get through this but I need you to give me the space
I need to be me and live true cuz the best feeling in the world is that your
own parents get you there’s a passage in a book called the Prophet by Kahlil
Gibran and if you don’t mind I’d love to share it with you go ahead
so he says your children are not your children they are the sons and daughters
of life longing for itself they come through you but not from you and though
they are with you they do not belong to you you may give them your love but not
your thoughts for they have their own thoughts you may house their bodies but
not their souls for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow so mom I’d
appreciate it if you give me the love that I need to pursue my dreams see if
we are to succeed all three of us need behavior change on all fronts we talk
about the future but the future is now and it is created now by all of us I’ve
never heard you speak like that before yeah I didn’t know but I’m gonna reach
out to administration and try to change some things you have my word

  1. I will show this to every teacher and even the principal and the administration I'm careless man get this to 50 like and I will

    Even though i don't reach the 50 likes i will show this through all the people who needs to understand even my teachers and my parents i need to be free

  2. I think my school might be ahead of the game here, lol, the test are only worth 30ish%, they focus a lot of creativity and do a lot of things student by student in terms of needs, we have a few bad teachers, but in general, I love my school

  3. they don't give a fuck about our future, why do you think #redfored was a protest they only care about the money if they cared about our future they wouldn't care about the money but i get that they need to have a living for themselves but if they really needed money don't you think they would get a different job? all they teach us is bullshit anyways

  4. As a young, aspiring practising teacher I feel offended and disrespected! Problems? – There is plenty. But just like students, we shouldn't be stereotyped either. People tend to forget how much teachers have to work behind the scenes as well as the pressure that's placed on them, and yet, they are the ones who must give their face to everything.

  5. You don’t have to be successful at school to be successful at life.
    Thing is, most school kids don’t have anything going for them outside of school, they just sit and play fortnite and talk back to their parents.

  6. Ok guys, to everyone who is reading my comment, I agree, and I also think school is useless, I feel like school is there, so your parents can yell at you, and make you feel miserable, probably make you want to become.. like antman and shrink, and think about what a loser you are. But you are not. I just want to say, you can graduate and do whatever you want, but so many dreams have been crushed. By what? YOUR SCHOOL. Just like mine.

  7. You know what's sad… I'm not even 16 and this made me cry knowing how true this was. The school system should change we aren't perfect but school is telling us we should be or we're failures. And being a straight A student doesn't feel as rewarding as it seems because I may have good grades but how school is being run still hurts. Me and others alike sit in class learning to memorize more than to learn. It doesn't benefit anyone and school's are starting to become delusional.

  8. Ok I get it, he was trying to make a good speech and it was but it looked like he was in elementary.
    So what type of elementary student would have any type of confidence to do that I mean none of us can lie about that.
    So if you were a child and that were real life and you were Prince EA, then I guess you would not be confident enough to do that.
    And look I am not trying to say that that was a bad video and if Prince EA sees this comment he may think that it is a bad comment because he is a really good guy
    and I appreciate his work he does on these videos, but I don't think it was very realistic. Now I know some people are gonna reply and be like, "Oh well he wasn't trying to be realistic it
    was only for a speech." Now I know that, but he could at least try to be a bit realistic OK. And again Prince EA is a good guy but I am just saying couldn't he at least TRY to be a bit more realistic in
    his speech videos? I wasn't trying to make this comment for like BTW.

  9. still think some students are really just lazy and don't want to put in the work. it takes time for change. interests change from beginning HS to end of HS. it did for me.

  10. Us students forget 95% of the things we learn in school but the thing that the school district doesn’t tell us is that school isn’t for learning it’s an exercise for the brain so when your older your brain is strong enough for you to think of the creative ideas that you were talking about in the video. The human brain fully develops at the age of 25 which is why a lot of people go to college so they can continue to exercise there brain so once it’s fully developed you will be ready for a job that requires fast thinking and creative ideas. So if you think about it school is the most important thing your gonna need in life.

  11. Bro if a teacher tried to change something about the way they are told to teach, the people above them will just fire them or let them go. I’ve seen it these past few years since I’ve been in high school. All of the good teachers that actually cared about their students are gone now because they didn’t want to teach the way they were told to because they knew it wouldn’t get through to us. Messed up ong

  12. U can't say this with out a teacher getting so defensive and trying to prove u wrong cause when they lose there job where do u want them to go next my point is that teachers need to prepare us for the future in a way that we know that we could succeed and live but no one is like that😞

  13. I clicked on this thinking it'd be a funny video to take my mind off stuff, but it was exactly what I needed to hear today. Thank you.

  14. aint it sad how a teacher would never let a student talk for this long if they disagreed without sending them to the office

  15. Some people may be good academicly and some people may also not be good academicly but they are good outside because some people do better when there not in class rooms because they are best when they do what they like .

  16. I thought this was a rap battle teacher ca student but it was the most inspirational thing I’ve heard in literally like 4 weeks
