Rapper Jim Jones has announced that he will teach high school students in New York City.
I’ll be teaching for eight weeks, I’ll be teaching a real curriculum, right now they’re actually going back and forth with the Board of Education to see what goes on and sh*t. I fully don’t know the whole logistics of everything — it’s definitely going to be fun…I’ma have to go home the weekend before and write out my lessons — this will be the funnest class you can go to and sh*t but you gonna learn a lot. We all went to school, n*ggas didn’t like homework, but we knew every single song that was out. Word for word, ad libs, all that…I think they’ll get this common sense. Music 101 I guess [is the course title.]
When it comes to education I am serious like a judge!!!
Read Jim’s quote and then watch the video. Does this look/sound like a man who is taking the role of educator seriously???
Does anyone know what the man will be teaching because he doesn’t seem to know!
Why would the public school system encourage this foolishness???
Is there a shortage of qualified teachers in New York City???
This really is dumbing down at it’s finest.
If I was told that Jim would be coming in to “teach” my child I would be appalled!
I would demand to know from the Board of Education why a rapper whose lyrics, lifestyle and attitude are questionable is coming in to “teach” my child for 8 weeks and not a qualified educator.
I would want members of the board to explain to me how they think Jim’s classes will benefit my child in the long run.
And then I would remove my child from that school and work my fingers to the bone to send her/him to a private school.
The Board of Education obviously don’t care about the kids who are being educated within the public school system. If they did this would not be happening.
