I don't need to know that kid or the teacher to know that what he says is true.

I can actually see the ideas outside of the person and analyze them separate from my judgements of the individual.

the students job is to meet the teacher halfway.


Agreed. And chewing the teacher out is this kid's idea of meeting his teacher halfway?



sounds to me like you are suggesting a predominantly one way street.


"Sometimes the teacher has to work a little harder and sometimes the student has to work a little harder" is a one way street, HOW?


was it really that easy for you?


To read what the teacher gave us? Yes. To do my homework? Yes! To study hard? Yes. It was my job!
What's hard about that?

What's wrong?

You don't think circumstance and environmental variables are predicting a specific outcome?

Obviously your not as we'll educated as you think because the science community seems to disagree.


Yeah, you know what? Uh huh. If the circumstances and environment aren't conducive to a desired outcome, here's a strange though, CHANGE THEM. I moved 1800 miles away from my wife and kids because the economy didn't allow me to provide there. 2 and a half years without my family until it worked out. I DO realize though that it's easier to blame other and whine than to actually figure a problem out on your own and THEN do something about it.

And I'll put my education against ANYONE in this thread.

Well, that's scientific.

What? who is this rebellious individual, he needs to be hunted down and put on watch, he seems exactly like the type to be a danger to other students and adults, obviously he has no discipline or respect regardless of his opinion, this is the exact attitude of the guy in the adult world who gets fired at work because he can't agree with his boss, or simply is incapable of fitting into any structured environment.

No sir, Mr. student, you follow in a long line of people who've had teachers and professors that might bore you to sleep, but let me tell, the delivery of the message is only part of it, the rest of the motivation has to come from within, I am not sure what class was being taught but he proved no point but making himself look like that know it all teen that needs a size 12 up his *SS, this is the result not of bad teaching but bad parenting that has seemed to spawn a selfish, spoiled disruptive person, just my opinion.

There is nothing absolutely agreeable to me about this video except that he left the class.

What?

Do you anything to add besides pure ad hominem?

You can't think deeper then spelling can you?


The Major continues to be amused, and has preserved your post, as it is perfect.

Not perfect in in the context of being finely crafted, cogent or even able to convey a concept or point. Perfect in failure. The Major is sure that the recruit does not not understand what an ad hominem attack is, but the Major will assure the recruit, that the Major does not engage in such puerile tactics. Your duplicity has been clearly demonstrated by the Major, and hastily contrived objections will not ameliorate your position.

On a lesser note, it would be "than" spelling, not "then" spelling.

Dismissed.

Actually, he added quite a bit.
There was the definition of 'ad hominen' provided, which illustrated the sense of 'tu quoque' in your posts, and then there was the semantic correction from 'then' to 'than'.

These are important observations because if incorrectly appliqued they can skewer the discustion towards the meaningless

I would recommend working on reading comprehension before endeavoring anything remotely mentally strenuous. The point is simple. IF YOU don't like your lot YOU have to change it. Don't complain and put it off on others. YOU are the one responsible for your lot. It can't be explained any simpler.

Oh for pity's sake. This is so inappropriate I don't even know where to start. If he has a beef with the teacher, fine. He could have aired it in an appropriate way.

This is nothing but attention-seeking.

There's a bigger issue at hand here which is the state of the American education system and most of us seem to agree with that.

So why is it bad that kids are standing up to it?

When has silence and apathy ever brought about change?

Would you have said the same to Dr King in the 50's?

Shut your mouth king and take your seat!

Oh stop self aggrandizing.


Sorry, it's my way...



Success relies heavily in circumstance and environment and if you don't believe that your looking the other way.


I do believe that they are factors, but that's not the ONLY determining factor of success. Circumstance, environment, hard work, dedication and personal responsibility are a few more. Do you think Oprah Winfrey depended on circumstance and environment to make her successful?

Oh cripes. "You":


In standard English, you is both singular and plural...


en.wikipedia.org...

The plural "you". Does "ones self" work better?

You are making that very hard to believe.

Supposedly the teacher was suspended with pay. Yes, it would be interesting to hear her point of view. I still stand by the kid though.

I get sick of hearing people say, "take responsibility do what it takes blah blah"


Yeah. I get that. What a crappy thing to say, huh? And you're tired of it? You have a long, hard road ahead.
