Videos like this are the result of not giving students in school enough opportunities to be creative. They see the world around them and recognize evidence of corruption. So they channel their creative energies into dynamic criticism, filled with anger, rage, and profanity that adds to the wasteland mentality that they condemn. Educationists have the ability to teach students to learn from the past, make the best of the present, and help students identify their purpose so that they can make meaningful contribution to the future. We CAN transform adolescent angst and adult discontent into relevance by building relationships, asking questions, and being honest with those we have the privilege to teach.

  1. By definition, children are creative unless stifled by rules and regulations, i.e. teach to the test. Seldom are teachers able to “let them go” but when they do, the results are amazing. Every year, they are asked to write poems and every year most of them must be convinced; when they do it finally, the resulting poems are simply amazing. No blase adult remains untouched by these explosions from the heart. If only we could exploit this creativity and open the doors that keep it bottled.
