In the middle of playing the Star Spangled Banner the kid playing the cymbals has a malfunction. So what does he do? He puts his useless equipment on the ground and proudly salutes the flag. A true patriot.
Michael Stewart was in Rift Valley of Kenya in the town of Mosoriot last February. The town was holding a high school track meet competition where students jumped the high jump. Mr. Israel’s Young Man plays over the video. Now, the video has gone viral over the weekend, amassing over a quarter million views.
Veteran teacher I Quit You Can’t Fire Me says that like so many teachers, she wanted to help her community as a teacher, and loved the hard work.
But over the past 15 years she has noticed a disturbing trend that countless other teachers and parents are picking up on.
“The emphasis in education has shifted from fostering academic and personal growth to demanding uniformity and conformity. Raising students’ test goals is now the only goal in teaching. Everything I loved about teaching is extinct.”
In the prank video, a school bus driver quiets the bus to tell the students an announcement. He claims that because of special circumstances he was going to drop them off as usual, only this time the students would immediately board back onto the bus to be taken back home.
“Apparently, you have another day of Spring Break,” he ended with to which the students erupted into a fit of cheers and screams.
The screaming seems to go on forever until a couple students start to get a little suspicious. Slowly, the cheering calms among the doubtful until the driver jumps and screams, “Who said? What’s today’s date? April Fools! I got everyone of you!”
Naturally, the children break out into an even greater fit of fury and screams.
Shrieks of “I hate you!” and “WTH?!” can be heard as the driver laughs and laughs at the misery of the children be taken off to school.
It’s that time of year again. Every year when the weather begins to warm countless prestigious institutions rally famous celebrities and comedians to speak at their commencement or graduation. Naturally, the speeches are extremely popular.
