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

  1. Ok Im a student and I agree with the POINTS, But complaining to teachers won’t do anything. Teachers are forced to teach to the test. Its the system that needs to change. And teachers deserve higher pay. How can we expect great teachers when sometimes they are paid minimum wage. But overall good points 👍

  2. This guy is saying great things that EVERY good teacher agrees with, so his videos aim at the wrong target in talking to teachers. Not even administration has the say to make the necessary changes that need to occur. It needs to be given to school boards and state legislatures that create state standards and develop testing requiements. Too many of them don't even have teaching experience…but you would think that, they being students once themselves, this would be understood. The system needs adjustment. Teachers do their best given the goals they must meet and they still have mouths to feed. They are easily replaced with someone willing to do what the system dictates in order to support the family.

  3. Ok we do need knowledge but we also don’t need social studies it’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever stressed out over and have my stomach literally hurt because something due tomorrow and I don’t even know where to start

  4. My casually scrolling to see how to roast my teacher and mom …. i can relate to dis AND THE WORLD NEEDS TO CHANGE

  5. They dont prepare No school is stupid french dont need german dont need english i need creativity i need love i need joy i need fun i need friend i need …. My Family i need…….

  6. Im going to do this next time this teacher That hates me I’m going to talk to her and SMASH HER FEELINGS AND MAKE HER KNOW WHAT I FEEL ABOUT SCHOOL.

  7. If I show this to my parents, they’re gonna give me a legit 3 hour lecture explaining why school is important and only specific careers are respectful (according to them). They say, if you’re ‘successful’ your ‘happy’. I don’t really believe that tho. After watching your videos, I have realised how important what we do in life is, including life itself. Because we get just once chance at life. So you need to be happy, not successful or rich. You should care for the environment. But the main thing is, BE HAPPY.
    Thank you, Prince Ea.
    Thank you for making me realise how much me and my life is worth.

  8. Sad thing is adults don't listen to what kids say, they always say stop acting like you know stuff your just a child your not experienced yet

  9. I feel the same way as everyone here. This one day my teacher was passing out the grades, I think to myself, “I’m gonna get an A!” Them I get the paper and I see and f. I really felt like everything around me was closing in..”WHAT IS MY PARENTS GONNA THINK? AND I GOING TO GET DISOWNED? WHY? WHY CANT YOU JUST HELP ME THROUGH THIS, INSTEAD OF SITTING THERE?” I felt…lost. I got home and showed my parents and they said, “WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?!? DO YOU WANT A FUTURE AT ALL?” I said I was trying but every time I get up in the mornings I feel tired from studying, depression, anxiety, etc. the point is, I’m with him in this and I think we shouldn’t have school we learn so much on our own and from friends! We shouldn’t spend 18 years of our life in a prison of anxiety, bullying. We should be free and able to learn things with a friend or on your own! With that saying I really do hate school.

  10. Me: saying this stuff to my mom, but can’t get the second word out

    My mom: god SHUT UP I’m done listening to this dumb talk now sit down AND STUDY, just give up already!!!!!

  11. No sorry I disagree with this. Going to school teaches you rules, determination, time keeping, meeting deadlines. These are the skills that are being taught. Teaching has changed, the MYP curriculum is student centered and student focused. Students are assessed on things more than just exams. This video sucks.

  12. You hate school to much and teachers. Teachers aren't the problems because they no there is problems but they don't have prower to fix it

  13. My teacher said to me once that we need to answer the questions faster and I really answered my teacher That we r not robots.

    So hope my teacher is watching this

  14. I like this guy

    All he says is all true
    while me…..

    me: talking

    teacher: SHUT your mouth

  15. Hey as a bonus my school thinks homework is just stupid we learn during school " that's what it's for" but either way this entire year I haven't been improving with school anyways I've been crafting things in Minecraft and ya know what it actually taught me something 2 thing actually I didn't know what an ocelot was before then I love animals but have barely anytime to learn about them so I'm glad a game did it for me and also didn't know what glass was made of well I like reading and surprisingly it's the less popular subject at school maths is the worst

  16. Me show my parents:look mom and dad
    My mom: he is lying
    My dad : yeah he is right
    My brain : your mom is trying to make you think he is wrong
    Me: yeah I know right
    So guys I’m seriously saying he is right and guys when my dad said he i mean Prince ea

  17. know what I say? “No… but most of the time you can MAKE it fair” and you know what they always say after that? Nothing… because it’s never been done… but it needs to be… now I am asking you… YOU, you reading this comment… PLEASE, no MAKE, Prince Ea read this… and once we get that far… Prince Ea, spread the word, make a video, do what ever you have to do to let people know this, please… I believe in you I don’t need any credit but it needs to be done. I’m only a kid and I need help from other people, not one person by them self can do something, so I’m asking you to help me, please…

  18. why isnt he the fucking president yet

    well i know he aint 35 yet but i mean goddamn

    he will change the education system

  19. if i tried to say some shit like this id probably end up in the principals if not expelled or suspended lmao

    my schools fucking strict

  20. If everyone thought like this including Students ,Teachers ,and Principals we wouldn't have problems in school. We wouldn't feel the way we do because Testing & Memorization is not what people in the real world look for.

  21. It doesn't, it should… parents don't get us and teachers don't see this. I have failed my algebra keystone 3 times in almost 2 years and I have studied a bit of algebra in 8th and taken it and passed it in 9th and 10th grade, I have tried to do all the work and have failed 3 times so something is definetly messed up with the school system's if not then I am just "a failure"
