Fed up with being given yet another unimaginative packet of worksheets to mindlessly fill out in lieu of an actual lesson, one high school student from Duncanville, Texas, tells his teacher as much, and is kicked out for it.

But on his way out of Mrs. Phung's world history class, the teen, identified only as Jeff, decides to go all-in with a rousing rant for the ages.

"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," Jeff tells his apathetic teacher. "You want a kid to change and start doing better? You gotta touch his freakin’ heart."


He continues:

You gotta take this job serious, this is the future of this nation. And when you come in here, like you did last time, and make a statement, about 'oh, this is my paycheck' — indeed it is. But this is my country's future, and my education.

Though there was no standing ovation at the end of Jeff's speech, one YouTuber who claims to be his classmate says the teen was "giving out free high fives after school."
