That teacher, whilst I have no idea of the syllabus...

and to say the kid isn't trying? you're pretty blind considering the fact he said something and is frustrated that there's no one guiding him properly, clearly he wants to learn, wants a teacher not a teleprompter, wants help. so who are you to judge the effort you haven't seen in a person you don't even know?

Nah it's true, I've seen that type of behaviour before in myself and others. He's lazy and he wants to quit, who can blame him really, high school didn't work out, and he is going to make damn sure continuation school doesn't work out either.
He's shifting his anxiety and sense of failure on to that teacher.
You're not really supposed to be recieving some world-class education at a continuation school, you just do the packets and get the hell out of there.
The boy chose the wrong hill to die on.

Nah, I didn't have to see that. I've seen many know it all kids. That VAST life experience letting them know what is what. Whine, whine. If he thinks he's not being taught, use your brain. Do something. There's this thing out called the Internet? Teach yourself then. Oh wait, that would entail problem resolution. Much harder than whining.
He DID use his brain and he DID do something. When he spoke about her talking about how it's her 'paycheck' he should have told her to 'earn it' !
Teachers who sit on their backsides for the entire lesson quoting from books and telling the pupils just to read the rest are incredibly lazy. That kid was absolutely right if that was her teaching method. She should 'engage' the class and work with them.
Good for him.

Gone are the days when teachers got into the profession to change the future, instead we're left with "I teach for summer's off and the gossip in the faculty room"! SMDH
