♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> Katie: WELL, THE DAYS OF CUDDLING AMERICA’S KIDS COULD BE OVER. INTRODUCING A BILL THAT WOULD BAN PARTICIPATION TROPHIES FOR CHILDREN IN SPORTING EVENTS. IT READS “AWARDS PROVIDED SHALL BE BASED ON IDENTIFIED PERFORMANCE ACHIEVEMENTS.” BUT IT SEEMS DEMOCRATS WANT TO PAMPER STUDENTS EVEN MORE. CHECK OUT THIS CLIP ABOUT
TALKING ABOUT ABOLISHING HOMEWORK AND F GRADES. >> TO BE QUITE FRANK, I DID NOT ISSUE A LOT OF HOMEWORK. THAT WAS MY WAY OF REBELLING AGAINST THE STRUCTURE. I DON’T THINK I EVER GAVE THE KID AND F. I DON’T KNOW HOW A STUDENT SITS IN FRONT OF YOU AND FAILS.
I KNOW SOME PROFESSORS MAY FIND THAT SLIGHTLY TROUBLING. >> Katie: I THINK THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PARTICIPATION TROPHIES AND THE TROPHIES FOR WINNERS. MAYBE YOU CAN HAVE BOTH FOR KIDS. >> Dana: I AM FOR A LIMITED GOVERNMENT, AND I THINK THIS IS NONSENSE AND RIDICULOUS HERE YOU DO NOT NEED TO LEGISLATE
ANYTHING. THAT PARENTS MAKE THE DECISION SPIRIT OR SCHOOLS, TEACHERS, HOWEVER. IF IT IS 5-YEAR-OLDS AND YOU ARE TRYING TO GET EVERYBODY TO PARTICIPATE, I GET IT. BUT I THINK WHEN WE MAKE FUN OF PARTICIPATION TROPHIES OR ACTUALLY SAY THERE IS CONCERN ABOUT IT IS WHEN THERE IS NO ROOM FOR COMPETITION AND MERIT
AND WINNING THAT WAY, WHICH IS WHAT HELPS DRIVE INNOVATION, AND THAT’S WHERE WE GET INTO A PROBLEM. AS FOR THE NO HOMEWORK AND THE Fs, ABOUT TWO MONTHS AGO, THERE WAS A REPORT OUT OF CHICAGO PUBLIC SCHOOLS THAT NOBODY COULD READ AT GRADE LEVEL, AND NOBODY COULD DO MATH AT GRADE LEVEL.
WE CALLED FOR A REPORT ABOUT THE COMMENT, AND THEY SAID WE ARE IN LINE WITH EVERY OTHER MAJOR URBAN SCHOOL DISTRICT. AS IF THAT WAS THE DEFENSE. SO I IMAGINE THAT CHICAGO PUBLIC SCHOOLS ARE NOT GOING TO DO MUCH BETTER UNDER THIS NEW MAYOR WHO IS REALLY TIGHT WITH THE TEACHERS UNION.
>> Katie: GERALDO, BRAGGING ABOUT THIS, HE IS NOT GIVING A Fs, SAYS THAT THEY ARE SUCCEEDING WHEN THEY ARE NOT DOING THE WORK. >> Geraldo: IN THEIR DEFENSE, GENERALLY SPEAKING, A KID GETTING AN F IS FROM A DYSFUNCTIONAL HOME. THEY ARE TRYING TO BE REMEDIAL. I GET THE OBJECTION TO
PARTICIPATION TROPHIES, BUT YOU WANT TO KEEP EVEN THE MARGINAL KIDS ENGAGED AND MOTIVATED. YOU DON’T WANT TO TELL THEM THEY ARE GOING TO BE FAILURES IN LIFE. I UNDERSTAND THAT. IT’S ALWAYS A COMPROMISE. I DON’T KNOW THIS GUY, THE NEW MAYOR OF CHICAGO. I WISH HIM WELL. HE’S GOT HIS HANDS FULL.
HE IS DEALING WITH THE REAL SITUATION WITH CITIES, CANCER. IT IS THESE POCKETS OF POVERTY AND DYSFUNCTION WHERE YOU DON’T HAVE A MOM AND DAD AT HOME. THAT’S THE ROOT OF IT ALL. I DON’T KNOW THAT GIVING THE KID A PARTICIPATION TROPHY IS A BAD THING. >> Katie: I THINK THAT FEELING
KIDS IS ACTUALLY A GREAT THING. ONE OF THE BEST THINGS THAT HAPPENED TO ME. THE TOUGHEST TEACHER I EVER HAD. I TOOK A TEST AND DID NOT DO THE BACK SIDE OF TEST BECAUSE I DID NOT TURN IT OVER. HE FAILED ME. SO THAT TAUGHT ME A BIG — JUST ON THAT TEST.
I MADE IT UP. BUT THE POINT IS, THROUGHOUT THE NEXT TEST, I FLIPPED THE PAGE OVER, AND HE HELPED ME SUCCEED, GREG, BY TEACHING ME A LESSON WITH MY FAILURE. >> Greg: A LOT OF PEOPLE LIKE TO SAY THEY SHOULD BRING BACK CORPORAL PUNISHMENT. I SAY CAPITAL PUNISHMENT FOR KIDS.
>> Jesse: GOOD IDEA. >> Greg: DON’T GET RID OF THE PARTICIPATION TROPHIES, BECAUSE THEN WHAT DO YOU GIVE TO KIDS LIKE ME? BACK THEN, IT WAS CALLED MOST SPIRITED. IF YOU DID NOT LAND A BASKET, I IF YOU DID NOT LAND A BASKET, I GOT MOST SPIRITED.
BUT YOU KNOW, THIS IS KIND OF LIKE A MILD REVERSAL OF DRAG QUEEN STORY HOUR. IT IS A PERFORMATIVE THING. IT IS LIKE AT SCHOOL YOU COULD NOT FIND ANYTHING ELSE OTHER THAN DRAG QUEEN STORY HOUR? IT IS A STATEMENT THAT THEY ARE MAKING, SAYING I THINK IT IS A LOUSY STATEMENT.
IT’S A WASTE OF TIME. IT IS OBVIOUS THAT YOU ARE KIND OF — IT IS A THUMB IN THE EYE. THEY ONLY SEE THESE GOALS, AND THEY DON’T KNOW HOW TO GET THERE. I DON’T WANT MY STUDENTS TO GET Fs. THAT IS A GOOD GOAL, SO HIS
SYSTEM AS I AM NOT GIVING THEM. YOU ACTUALLY BECOME A REALLY GOOD TEACHER, AND YOU TRY TO HELP THEM. YOU DON’T JUST SAY I AM NOT GOING TO GIVE OUT Fs. THAT IS IDIOTIC. THAT’S THE PROBLEM. THEY’VE DECIDED NO MORE DETENTION. YOU CANNOT EXPEL PEOPLE. IT IS LIKE WHEN THEY ELIMINATE CRIMES.
THEY SAY CRIME IS DOWN. THAT IS NOT A SYSTEM. >> Katie: TAKING CHALLENGES AWAY FROM KIDS DOES NOT HELP THEM, NECESSARILY. >> Jesse: I FAILED SHAKESPEARE AS A JUNIOR, AND I THINK THAT GUY IS SO OVERRATED. >> Katie: SHAKESPEARE? >> Jesse: HE IS IMPOSSIBLE TO READ. I’M PROUD OF THAT F.
I WAS REALLY INTO TROPHIES AS A KID. I HAD ALL MY TROPHIES SET UP. ALL MY MEDALS AND EVERYTHING. IT WAS A BIG DEAL. ONCE WHEN MEET, I THINK THEY GAVE OUT A RIBBON. I GOT FIFTH PLACE, WHICH I’M STILL ASHAMED OF, IN BREASTSTROKE. I COULD NOT EVEN HANG IT.
I TRIED TO HIDE IT BEHIND ANOTHER RIBBON, AND I THINK I BURNED IT IN THE BACKYARD IN A CEREMONY. >> Geraldo: SUCH AN INTRIGUING STORY. >> Jesse: IT MADE ME A BETTER SWIMMER, NOT BY GETTING BETTER AT BREASTSTROKE BUT BY QUITTING BREASTSTROKE AND BECOMING A BACKSTROKEBACKSTROKER. >> Greg: YOU KNOW WHAT WE
SHOULD DO? WE SHOULD GO TO YOUR SWIMMING POOL WHERE YOU STARTED THE BACKSTROKE. DO A WHOLE PACKAGE. SPEED SWIMMING.
IN FINLAND WHICH IS ONE OF THE BEST COUNTRIES ON EARTH , STUDENTS ARE NOT GIVEN HOME WORK AND ARE NOT GIVEN GRADES, HERE IN THE U.S.A WHY BOTHER PUNISHING STUPIDITY , SEE HERE FOX VIEWERS ARE THE FACE FOR PURE STUPIDITY , FOX HOSTESSES AND OWNERS DO KNOW THIS FACT HENCE THEY GIVE GUYS PURE LIES.
FtDP and their supporters!
He never handed out an F because he didn't want to acknowledge the fact that he was a horrible teacher.
Generally speaking, Geraldo is a moron!
He's a disgrace to his race we have enough of uneducated children the mayor should have gotten an f because look at how he's running Chicago he's a token mayor put in by the democrats
BJ proves that education is not required to be mayor of chitcago!
as a retired Coach, I agree on Banning "Participation Trophies" ! I let my team vote on accepting those at Tournament; they Voted against it. After the MVP accepted her trophy , the rest of the team "sat out" of participation trophy award ! Ironically, our Team Won "SPORTSMANSHIP" Award …with was the Largest Trophy of them ALL !! 🏆 👏
Kids know they are participation trophies, it doesn't help their self esteem. Humans are competitive, and even kids know who came first and who came last. Also I think it removes the motivation to excell.
Most of us care about poor & troubled kids, but they certainly aren't helped by pretending they're not failing. Gutfeld had the right of it
Demacrat party keeping black American uneducated so they can control them,and why not just get rid of sports all together because some kids are not good at them
The worst thing we did to the millennial and Gen Z generation was give them participation trophies. We told them they could be successful at minimal effort and now nobody wants to work. They all want to live in fantasy land and expect us to pretend with them.
Participation trophies are a bad idea.
Not only do they apply to only one of the facets that make the total child, they also taint the relevance of activities that do not hand out trophies.
He worse that Lori Lightfoot
Keep 'em dumb.
That's good policy.
Nonsense. If a student is not learning the material one gets the Fail. Duh. School = education = Learning stuff. Disciplined people deserve the blessings of life. Be disciplined and discipline your children.
Kids need to know.., do better!!!
YES!! FINALLY! All of you 60's and 70's kids remember this conversation? "Hey, I see ya %'d up, you'll get over it, walk it off". Not everything is gonna go your way.
If you assign homework, you need to grade it and have standards. The plantation is against the education of the people living there. You also disarm the servants and lock them up for minor crimes, but you normalize serious crimes and set them free to intimidate the community. Democrat policies are working as intended.
Getting no reward and realizing that I was a loser. Was a great character builder. Stop trying at something that I suck at and work smart not hard.
This is why China is blowing right past us
Dana Perino is a classic lazy conservative. The left pushes things governmentally, and so the right must likewise push back.
We moved from the west coast to the east coast years ago. My homeschooled kids tried public school in NC. They were appalled when they recieved "Closing The Minority Education Gap" awards- lol. (Our surname is Latino, which seemed to be a deciding factor.)
One more reason to home school your kids if like he said no homework no bad grades why send them there for what possible reason. There not going to learn anything
