I’ve Always Dreamed Of Interrupting A Teacher During History Class. How He Did Was Just Brilliant.

No disrespect to teachers. They put up with some supreme
challenges at times, often doubling as parents, confidants, and even modern-day
soldiers.

I say all of that as a warning. When you see how this student
talks to his teacher, it may be a little jarring. (At first I was like — whoa!)
But that’s only because what he’s saying about history and the flawed way it’s been taught is true.

So yeah, this student blames the messenger, but it’s only
because she’s first in a line of many who should rethink how and what we teach
in schools.

My absolute favorite part is when the comic
relief kicks in, when a note is passed at 5:50. You’ve gotta watch it before that, though, to get it.

Its
interesting how Samuel King’s poem “What I Wasn’t Taught in
School
,” which talks about Black History Month (celebrated in October in
the U.K.), feels a lot like the history class I had here in the states.
