Rising up for "My Education"

It's not news that over the last 40 years education is this country has been dominated by leftist union tools who, on a good day, do a little more than show up for a paycheck.
What is news is when the ones they are actually supposed to be teaching notice.

This is a video of a student calling out a lackadaisical teacher for not bothering to even try and inspire the students under her charge to learn.

Duncanville student's teacher rant goes viral

A Duncanville High School student who was kicked out of class lectured his teacher on his way out.
FOX4's Calvert Collins spoke with him after his rant, which was recorded by a fellow classmate.
His passionate speech has gone viral. It's gotten tens of thousands of hits and comments after it was posted online. The 90 second video message has caught the attention of newspapers and TV stations nationwide.
Jeff Bliss said he was standing up for his education but admits he could have handled it differently.
He hit a boiling point over a test in his World History class Tuesday morning.
"My question was, why we don't get the same amount of time to take the test as the rest of her classes," said Bliss.
He says his teacher replied with profanity telling him to stop his questioning and leave. That's when he erupted.
Dr. Alfred Ray wouldn't confirm if the teacher cursed at Bliss although he says she did.
Bliss says in the rant, "If you would just get up and teach them instead of handing them a freaking packet, there's kids in here who don't learn like that."
He then left the classroom.
Dr. Alfred Ray, the superintendent for Duncanville ISD said, "less than 10 minutes after it occurred, the teacher cared so much about her student that she went down to the office with the assistant principal while someone else watched her class and they had a conversation in that office and came to some agreement and the student came back to the class later that same period."
In an interview with Steve Eager, Jeff Bliss said one of his key points is the fact that it's not just about his education, it's about our education. "If we embrace this, I feel as if we can make a serious change and a positive change. But if we just want to ignore and push this to the side then I expect to see the same problems again and again."~snip~
The video on YouTube has almost 300,000 views and most support what he had to say.
When even students notice the piss poor techniques of the educator class who've devolved into a mere presence for a paycheck then it's time to re-evaluate our public education system.
The quote below is attributed to Albert Shanker, president of the United Federation of Teachers from 1964 to 1985 and president of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) from 1974 to 1997
"When school children start paying union dues, that’s when I’ll start representing the interests of school children."
It's in dispute whether he made the quote or not, but one thing is clear.
