Repeatedly bringing up the strike and alleging unprofessional behavior on the teacher’s part, the unnamed student let it be known that she wasn’t going anywhere. She was going to sit right down and he was “going to teach today.”
Watch the video below:
The response to the girl’s tirade has been mixed. Most applaud her, while others have said that she was disrespectful and belligerent. Though acknowledging that she should be commended for demanding an education, some viewers felt she should have voiced her concerns more respectfully.
One of the girl’s classmates feels differently:
“…everyone else that called her stupid and ghetto… You all don’t know what y’all talking about,” wrote moniquesalter3395 in a comment on YouTube. “I have this class with her and she’s right about everything that was stated. He DON’T teach us. He tries to be a disciplinarian instead of a teacher; he belittles us and talks down to us like we are stupid. He does not care if [he] hurts your feelings he will laugh about it . So why you all are saying she stupid know what y’all are talking about.
“Nobody knows what he put us through in that 2nd period class why y’all talking. We all were fed.up with what he was doing she was just the main one that was willing to do it during the class period. I understand all the cursing was not necessary but then again after holding in all that anger towards him it was about time it came out when it came out.”
