Duncanville High School student Jeff Bliss got in trouble in class for talking out of turn. What was he talking about? Basically everything that's wrong with our education system today. It's a mic-droppingly epic speech.

This was not an indictment of his teacher; to me, this was an indictment of the entire teach-to-the-test standardization that has been forced on our teachers and has broken our country's education system. The American Federation of Teachers wants this to be fixed too. Learn more about how they want to help fix things for our teachers and our kids. And then sign the petition demanding that our Department of Education change the way they do business.
