Jeff Bliss, a student at Duncanville High School in Duncanville, Texas, is now an Internet sensation for his impassioned, impromptu speech about education that got him kicked out of his classroom.
Bliss ranted to his teacher, saying, “If you would just get up and teach them instead of handing them a freaking packet, yo. There’s kids in here who don’t learn like that. They need to learn face to face.” He continued, “You gotta take your job serious. This is the future of this nation.”
Duncanville Independent School District spokeswoman Tammy Kuykendall told Mashable, “He makes a number of valid statements about how classrooms across America need to change and we view this as an opportunity to have more conversations about transforming our schools to better meet the needs of our students.”
