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

    Stuyvesant, Brooklyntek and other specialist schools.

  2. Them: Fails
    Their mom: “What do you have to say for yourself?”
    Me: Fails

  3. Him: Puts This Video On YouTube
    Me: Know What I’m Never going to do my Homework Ever again

    10 Years Later

  4. teachers tell us that we'll end up on the side of the street if we don't study. But what they don't tell us is that the people at the side of the street earn more them them.

  5. We need this dude to be at like 90 mill subs almost 100mill subs because of his CREATIVITY

  6. no one is going to see this but I hate how kids say that book smarts are everything but I'm not good in school but I can fix a car I can make a pc I can read political things all day and love it but when I get to school I hate it because people always worry about there grades and put people down.

  7. Ya but if school only prepared people to be creative and stuff then we won't have any mechanics construction works or doctors, surgeons and stuff like that prince ea just wants to ruin you're life

  8. this video inspires me so much i am only 15 but i want to do something about schools but i don't know what to do to change it. i am only so big.

  9. i am probably one of the million comments but i don't want to be just one in a million i want to be like you and stand out and make a difference in the school system

  10. I actually agree with this video, I've always had a love for technology, programming, coding, and space, however in school that's not always the case, stress, too much homework, and force from the teachers, blaming us for not doing well instead they should blame the way they teach through forcing of teaching instead of going step by step connecting the dots, and making class fun, instead class is boring. Which is why I kind of like being homeschooled more and don't really like school, I agree this school system needs to change, especially in America. I have a dream of making a company and a program that would help millions of children and lives across the world, I hope the other people's dreams also succeed and happen, luckily I have a chance in a school where they have programs and electives, more fun, and a really high graduation of a 99%, and an A grade in clubs and activities A+ in Academics and Teachers and college prep and A in diversity. I hope this school leads me to the/my way of achieving my dream. I hope for others too!!! 🙂 😀 =D

  11. what future is school preparing for when in history class they teach what happend not whats happening,or in math they never change the curriculum or the style of teaching, just the old way,or in ELA where we only look at old articles or books which may sometimes give us some good knowledge but nowadays in school it can take a hour to learn a fact or when i can just pull out my phone and look it up on google in 15 seconds that can give me a better answer than some dead beat teacher can ever give, im not saying that all teachers are bad, i have had my handful of great teachers but their have been a lot more bad teachers, things need to change.

  12. Really thoughtful, as you said the future is about what u can innovate by ur knowledge. But how would u apply knowledge to solve real world problems if u don't have the knowledge? You cant denigrate books and education system entirely. Yes, it needs improvement but its fine. You are encouraging negligence and laxity among students by justifying ur poor F grade!

  13. My school be like: just do your work.

    Me: my dream job just got executed
    Also me: what's the point of school
    Also me: I am doing this for nothin'

  14. Since I don't know how to do motivational speeches, I just showed this to my teacher,
    Now my teacher is the one respecting me.

  15. Humanity made themselves believe that studying is EVERYTHING.

    Honestly, how could you use algebra if your job is a painter?

    How could you use the dates you learned in history class in your job as a doctor?

    School only helps us to learn stuff that could help us in life, but it didn't taught us what we could use in life.

    They never let us to show our talents and skills and help us to be greater with them. Our teachers never cared in what we're good at.

    Imagine a child, he was good in drawing. Whenever he practices his art, the teacher would take his paper away and scold him for not listening in class.

    When he grew up, and got his diploma, he didn't acheive anything. His diploma didn't help him to live his dream.

    He grew up as a miserable office employee, not happy at his job.

    Now, imagine if his teachers never took his drawing away and let him increase his skills.

    He would grow up as a painter, or architect.

    School crushes children's dreams and force them to learn how to be successful, but not even knowing what they can do to be more than successful.

  16. See that things you say maybe is true but with no school we can't do anything and if you are trying to the school you gonna try and in your work and second everyone it's gonna need you , try to do your best and don't stop , that world need Humans Hou can go in the top (i dont say I'm that person and no I'm not in the top i am a student to but i try my best ) but the only way to provide you are good is to finish the school and to do something in your life see all of that people hou did it is human Hou was i can say lucky because just imagine the othe people who try the same but failed its over the namber i can read.

    (I am not very good at English must i have some falls words pls don't be mad with me)

  17. My mom is a math teacher should I show this video to her because I think i should but at the same time I don’t know

  18. Him talking
    Teacher & mom : lestening

    Me start talking

    Me : with all respect don't call me a failure failure is a……….

    Teacher & mom : shUT TF uP hOW aRe yoU StiLL taLking yOu FailuUrE

  19. This is false. F-A-L-S-E. You cannot learn everything by yourself. Sure, take out teachers. Now you don’t know how to speak English. Now you don’t know how to count change. Now you don’t know what time it is because you cannot read a clock. I could go on.. And no, your parents could not teach you how to do such things because in the future, they won’t know either. Think of how life would be, in the future, without teachers. Not knowing to change a diaper, bathe a child, speak to other people. We are already having problems speaking with other people NOW. You cannot just take out teachers because they play an important role in your life. They DO set you up for your future. We’ve been using knowledge from the past for years, and look where that got us now! Robots, electronics, cars, etc… Teachers are the one of the most helpful things. This is like hating on doctors, they are only here to help you. TEACHERS ARE DISRESPECTED AND PAID LOWLEY FOR THE STUFF THEY HAVE TO DEAL WITH. This guy is giving his audience, who are still younger teenagers, kids, tweens, the thought process of, “Yeah, teachers are crap! All they do is waste your time and get you in trouble for no reason.” Well.. I’m sorry you had a bad experience. However, don’t let your audience think they have some terrible teachers just because the teachers you had are WACK.

    I’m going to get hella hate on this. Let’s goooooo.

  20. Just walked into class quietly:
    Teacher: hi
    Me: hello
    Teacher: WHY ARE U TALKING

  21. Dont mind me but im going to memorize this for my English Writing class, we need to talk about what we want to change in the future, and im giving all the credit to you

  22. School stresses me out so much that I usually have to run out of class and cry in they hall. This is because everyone in class gets th subject we are talking about but then theirs me, not knowing the heck we are talking about, and the sad thing is I went up to the teacher to ask what are you say I don’t understand any of it. Her reply was was down right messed up she said “Melody, we have been talking about this for several days, have have you been doing in class huh?” I started to cry in front of my whole class that already hates me for being who I am. My point is, why are teachers disrespectful to students shes trying to teach and help understand. One teacher out of the whole school I go to understands my pain I have when I’m scared to ASK A SIMPLE QUESTION. I just want an explanation from them as too why they think it’s ok to talk to me that way. Now that’s a reasonable question that needs to be asked to the teachers and needs to be answered, along side this whole video.🤔😩

  23. Teacher: you’re daughter is a failure!

    Me:*says everything inside this video*

    Mah American mama: daughter, tf you’re sayin?

  24. so true because at my primary school, there was a exam that you had to make to go to the school. they were looking at your writing, your speed, your imagination, etc. not your grades!
