This video illustrates why America is going down the tubes



English Teacher lectures students on being disrespectful


I posted this video as example of what I have seen first hand in many classrooms the last decade. It illustrates why we have so many teachers leaving the profession. The # of Male teachers have dropped immensely the last 25 years.. Men are excellent teachers and we need their influence. But they have said "you deal with it".... A man can not be disrespected publicly, it just cuts him to the core... I feel worse for the teacher than I do the students. This shouldn't happen but it's pretty common...

Apex...this is clearly in England. The teacher's name is Nigel, he's described as an English Teacher, every kid in the class speaks with a British accent and you hear a European style siren going off in the background.

The only way this scene could be more English is if Monty Python went walking across the screen slapping Queen Elizabeth in the noggin with a basket of fish and chips.

ETA: Did I mention that the person who uploaded the video and who wrote the description as if they were a member of the class is listed as being in the UK?

That's the most British American school I've ever seen.

Eta: that was way too mellow of an outburst to be an American school. In America, a) it wouldn't have been the Asian being kicked out and b) there would have been an at least one smart arse or bad mouth in the class.

The problem is that kids rely on parents to teach them how to treat other people. Some teach their kids and some don't. Whether its the schools responsibility or not, I think it needs to be part of the curriculum in elementary school. Lessons in humility and common decency.

I think this video illustrates the problem we have with drivers in America.

You guys can make fun of me all you want that it was filmed overseas..

Let's stay on point

I've walked the halls of many schools in America, many, several times... this is very close to reality in our classrooms.. Absolute frustration ..a very difficult environment to teach.

It all starts at home ...every single bit of it

I agree with your point.

You know those "What would you do if money were not a part of the decision" type conversations? Well, I'd be a teacher....EXCEPT for the environment and union / admin issues.


I have tutored and would really enjoy being a teacher. In today's school situation? No way.

Sadly, education doesn't seem to be valued much in this country anymore. Even in private schools, where teachers have more flexibility in administering rules and punishment, they are so underpaid that they either: 1) one can't make a decent living, or 2) don't think it's worth it.

Economics can be a real bitch sometimes.
