I love everything this kid says here. I don't want to blame the teacher, and I'm sure there's more to the story than we're seeing here, but she sounds so apathetic that it hurts.

It seems like he's taking his frustration out on the system more than the teacher herself. She probably has no room to work with and is forced to "teach the test" or whatever the hell they do now, and that's just sad.

But still. Good on you, kid.

This guy, Jeff Bliss, has turned into something of a minor celebrity since this whole thing happened a few weeks ago (I wanted to post it right after it happened, but had to wait until that damn contest ended). He's done a couple of interviews and started a Twitter account, but to his credit, it doesn't seem like he's milking it for attention and really trying to keep the focus on the problem that he addresses in his rant.

I can only hope that lasts and he actually follows through instead of cashing in, quitting school and doing reality TV, which would just negate this entire rant. Fingers crossed.
