  • Also from the article

    How well is that going? Well, one Banana Kelly student recently posted a YouTube video titled "OnePeriodinBananaKelly." Recording what appears to be a stroll around the school during the middle of the day, the nine-minute continuous clip offers a glimpse into a school utterly lacking in supervision. Bedlam reigns in the hallways, while students play dominoes in the classroom. At no point does a teacher or administrator intervene.

    The irony in all of this is that voices who speak most passionately about the inequity of the school system and the plight of disadvantaged students are the ones digging a deeper hole

  • Hahahahaha. Forget teaching reading, writing and math! Teach these kids to be angry at THE MAN. Then when they grow up uneducated and unemployable, they'll have better conversations about how THE MAN is keeping them down.

  • I agree with anon :12. Teaching kids that the world is out to get them doesn't encourage them to go out and tackle the world.

  • Um, Hello!!! These "KIDS" know exactly what they are doing! They are acting like animals and speaking like trash! Let's not forget that these teachers put up with these "kids" all day long, all year long and get paid probably about $40,000 at best.

    Based on the fact that in the beginning of the tape, the girl was moving her desk back - it looks like a change of periods/classes and that the ruckus is just beginning as the 'kids' start to walk the hallways. Maybe it was summer school? maybe the day of early release? maybe a pep rally day? maybe teacher planning was thrown off so the kids WERE sitting quietly working or playing games...

    When does responsibility and accountability fall on these "kids"? Their parents must be so proud! The language, the motion of shooting the girls in the back of the head, "You see this nigga right here? he's a ho.", all vulgar things that my kids know is WRONG!!! slum kids=slum school
