Video Of Duncanville High Student Scolding His Teacher Goes Viral Online

DUNCANVILLE (CBS 11 NEWS) - The Duncanville Independent School District has made a statement about a viral video taken in one of its high school classrooms.

The cell phone video shows a student, who has apparently been told to leave the classroom, telling his teacher how she can be more effective.

"You want kids to come into your class? You want them to get excited for this?   You gotta come in here and make them excited. You want a kid to change and start doing better? You gotta touch his freakin' heart. Can't expect a kid to change if all you do is just tell 'em," says the student in the video.

The teacher can be heard telling the student "you're wasting my time," "bye" and "get out" through the minute and a half video.


DISD has released the following statement in response to the video:

"The district is aware of the video and we are currently addressing the situation. As a district with a motto of Engaging Hearts and Minds we focus on building positive relationships with students and designing engaging work that is meaningful.  We want our students and teachers to be engaged, but the method by which the student expressed his concern could have been handled in a more appropriate way. We are and will continue to be open to listening to students."
