am not sure if anyone else has seen this. This kid wants to learn and
the teacher sits behind the desk doing nothing except send him out the
door. This kid is right. These kids want to learn, but can not learn
from packets and movies and no guidance. Watch the video here.
When I was in the 8th grade, I had an "English" teacher who had a LAZY BOY RECLINER in the classroom! We didn't do anything ALL YEAR and if we talked too loud when he was trying to sleep in his recliner we had to write sentences. We had to write sentences a lot. Once, I told my mom, she called the school and the next day when everyone else had to write sentences "I will not be loud in class"... he came to me and said "you don't have to write any". HA! They knew he had a recliner in his classroom but never did anything about it. Needless to say, I learned nothing that year and went into High School 9th grade not knowing anything about English. TRUE story.
