Blood boiling… How are all the comments on the students’ side…

She’s just doing a sophisticated power play… and the teacher is helpless

The teacher is not helpless.
The teacher is choosing to be rigid, and not knowing how to choose the right words to defuse this.

The teacher is being passive aggressive, withholdingly/emotionally abusive.

The student is being assertive, transparent with their intentions/acts/feelings.

The whole moment is presented out of context. We can interpret this in any number of ways, and we're really just seeing it through our lens.

I think maybe the student is getting support (despite this seeming like a gang/bully situation), because teachers are given authority. And sometimes authority is abusive, and traumatising, and mishandled.

I think that's why people are cheering the student. The student is an underdog by default, and might even be facing repercussions for her callous act of defiance. Insubordination.

I think the student has more to lose objectively. I don't know if it's a popularity play, it might just be a down-trodden person trying not to let the world push them around.

Teacher should have advised her not to let the door hit her in the ass as she leaves....

@originnone Exactly... take a lap. Esp. if the student's burning out.

@originnone Maybe even just talking quietly in the hall, and asking if everything is okay.
They'll never solve anything with an audience there.

As in many video capture situations online today, a lot of context could be missing so we don't know the whole story. Let alone the teacher's side of the story. What I do know is being a teacher in this day and age has to be hard. As you say, a teacher is relatively helpless. When I grew-up you respected teachers like you did your parents.

Can't or better shouldn't take either side... as long as there is lack of respect coming from both sides things won't work. Teachers like to use the existing hierarchy for their advantages making students react defensively.

Too bad the teacher can’t punch that smirk off her face.

Even if the student is 100% correct, it’s wrong to overtly disrespect your elders.

Why? If they can't respect me why do I have to respect them?

@Gloomy actually she was being respected but then she broke the rules to ‘help her friend’ which isn’t her decision to mak

@Clarabee There is context missing and either way the reaction of the teacher was immature, passive aggressive and makes it seem like she is not fit to be a teacher.

teachers hands are tied now, they're governed by the woke agenda.
@ravenhill what exactly is this so-called "woke agenda" you speak of? Can you give a detailed explanation or are you just parroting a phrase?
Clarabee · 22-25, F
@SW-User I think one of is to deny that anyone has authority over anyone else like teachers over students
@Clarabee can you cite a legit source proving this is on some official "woke agenda"?

Who knows what else happened.

I do not know why anyone would put up with a job of being a teacher.
Of course, it is on TikTok.
