We learned a little bit more yesterday about Jeff Bliss, the Duncanville High School student whose blistering classroom rant against uninspired teachers seems to have struck a nerve. He’s 18, but he’s only a high school sophomore, having dropped out of school for a year. He’s new to, and not yet very good at, Twitter. His mom is proud.
Jeff Bliss, a sophomore at Duncanville High School in Duncanville, Texas was asked to leave his World History class by his teacher, but he didn’t go without a passionate speech about his teacher’s lack of passion for her profession. I won’t waste time reiterating what other articles have already said though.
In a rant which was recorded by a classmate, Bliss criticized his teacher for giving out packets instead of engaging with students. Watch in the video below. “If you would just get up and teach them instead of handing them a freaking packet, yo.
In an interview with WFAA-TV, Bliss told the channel that he did not regret his remarks, and that he became serious about his education after dropping out of school for a year. “ I want to see a teacher stand up and interact with the students, get involved, discuss, talk, question and dig deep into the subject,” said Bliss in the interview.
