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

100 thoughts on Student Vs. Teacher (2019)

  1. To be honest this kinda makes me feel wierd. I always got good grades before moving (i am an immigrant living in France) so i worked hard to catch up on he language (luckily i learned english on the internet) and got good grades now i ma entering high school and, well, hearing that all your work equals to nothing feels kinda bad :/. I mean yeah bad grades dont equal bad life but isn't it still a fact that moat people who do well in school have better jobs, and coubtries who invest in education do better on thw job market?I guess what im trying tosay is are you saying i wasted a lot of my time?

  2. Where do you get that criativity tho?… u need to know everything so u can play with it and thats when school comes in to teach u some facts that might help u out on ur future ideas…. so of course ppl arent failures cause they didnt memorize some useless things but scholl just fails this kids so they have another chance to go out to the real world, maybe one year later or two but atleast they are prepared

  3. I gave some sorta similar speech to my teacher he laughed and sent me to the principals office and because here we have a really strict school system if you ever get detention it affects your chance of getting a job

  4. 5% of all the things I’ve learned is from school, true learning will happen with the 3 things of true learning, the internet, good conditions, and free time.

  5. me saying this to my mom and teacher during parent teacher meeting, well prepared.
    Ends up getting grounded and mom wacks me in front of the whole school…
    These videos don't change the minds of our parents or teacher,it's sad tho 🙁


  7. Sadly the teachers in my school will say ARE YOU ARGUING WiTH ME!!!, send a behavior slip to my mom for arguing with the teacher, and I would get whooped in the ass

  8. I'm in intro to engenering at martinsville high school and the teacher does not prepare us for the future or are careering he just preparing us for college Instead of the future

  9. Dont know why but I watched this vedio 5 times back to back and I really really think us and what I mean us is everyone in the comments should start making small steps toward changing school critics cuz this speech is so real its unbelievable and I have the same problem in my 4th period thing if I dont look at the clock it will go quicker feeling like it's been and hour but has been only 3 mins. This day and age is based on college saying u need to go to have a good job hell naw u dont my dad didn't and he is making 80 thousand a year cuz construction and welding and etc dont have to have a college degree u just have to know how to do it. There is jobs in the world where. College dont mean shit. So now who agrees

  10. Thank you. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life but now I know I want to be a teacher to try to help students using some of the things I’ve learned from your video. I’ll do as much as I can to help students.

  11. My mom went to get her High School diploma and she was studying for a test and she said this is really tough I feel you now honey, take a break when you need too. I remember her saying she would do anything to go back to school, there she was complaining she wanted to be over with the test,and get out of school. 😂

  12. what a stupid idiot you are. and what's more stupid is that gullible people eat this "inspirational" fake shit ideas from a douche with 4.5m subscribers who made around 10000$ on this hypocritical video.

  13. But the reality is Different i cant say a word when teacher is complaining😂😂😂

    Jokes a side it was good👍👍

  14. And what is sad? Teachers never listen students…NEVER. If I say this my teacher I think they just starting laugh said something like:”Oh Josephina, go back in your class…„

  15. All youre videos relly gets on my heart, I always get some tears when watching they be use they are so right and you go so deep in it. Thx

  16. Mo voglio vedere se il dottore ti deve fare un un'operazione e per essere creativo ti fa un fiocco con lo stomaco

  17. My prof delete My life and career. I never offend him. He make me redone a ram like 48 Times. lost 5 years of life. When He goes away i passed that exam. Who will give me back My soul? Now I succeded in many other things. and help offline Young students in My country to Belleve in themself. I refuse to make me beat Again Like that.

  18. Grades are like money, the money doesn't make us happier but It helps to be it, the grades cannot decide your future but helps in it

  19. Okay I agree with everything he just said… but how? How can we change everything? Instead of grades and test scores, what should we do? Because I 100% agree that things need to change but I don’t understand how we can change them. I showed my parents this video and they challenged me saying that there was no other way…but I know there has to be. Because things do need to change and fast. But I really thought about it and I can’t come up with a solution. Prince Ea, give me a solution!

  20. Y'all can see all the rich ppl are rich not because of school cause when they came out of school they discovered,made,founded stuff and school had nothing to do with school is not our future it's something u can go to get some money not become a billionaire or millionaire

  21. They teach me what a hypotenuse is when hypotenuse has nothing to do with what I want to become or they teach stuff in science like soil and all that stuff about weather like that's bullshit and I fail a test about shapes and angles cause When that has nothing to do with what I want to become I want to be a software engineer not a mathematician like u don't have to teach me every single thing In math

  22. Where do you think all these future coming from if it not come from school and university? Where do u think all those scientists coming from?

  23. In my opinion, many advanced technology come from people that graduated from school and university. also born with high IQ
    Let me know if u guys know better

  24. Half of the the stuff we use in school we don’t even use in real life so what’s the point. Like sure math but some of the new math sucks and barely helps.

  25. Prince Ea is right… if you want people to have a grade in how you know stuff… you should make it at least fun for the rest of your teaching days 😛

  26. I mean for people, for kids all around, teachers should change there ways of teaching and make learning fun, so we can be ourselves

  27. Fr thoe yall trying to be doctors and lawyer's why the fuck do u need social studies for that and math 2 and 3🤷‍♂️

  28. I wish i could tell a teacher this, but if i open my mouth its another detention. If I even got anything out, i would be stopped midway by the teacher or parent telling me im being ridiculous.

  29. I really think that the school system must change.
    If they're not there to prepare us for the future, what else is school for? And now they're not preparing us for the future but the past and before they know it past is over and they missed to prepare us for the future.
    Our future.
