About: Coach Carter (5/9) Movie CLIP - A Better Life (2005) HD
Getting an education is far more important than having money
Bruh this is what young bloodz need... If I had someone that genuinely cared about me like that... I would be Hella motivated to do anything... You can just feel how much he cares about em and actually wants to help
We need a coach carter in every class but more importantly in every house hold. I was told growing up that I was dumb and that I would never amount to be anything. In high school, it became clear that you only got positive attention if you were talented. If you were deemed smart you’d go to B track and if you were average C or D track. Only one teacher told me to go to college, but I told him I wasn’t smart enough and he didn’t push. It wasn’t until I was on a bus and heard a Mexican comic with a college degree say that he didn’t want to be a statistic. Ultimately, it took me 10 years to graduate college but I am thankful I did because I see my purpose. I worked at the YMCA and got to encourage teenagers to not only go to college but the best college they could get into and most of the ones I have spoken to have and have began graduating. Finally, a co-worker that I’d encourage daily to go to college finally graduated. A co-worker that is a janitor took my advice and got a trade. I see how beautiful his life has become. People have been bamboozled to think that they don’t need college but here is a stat for you 80% or millionaires have a degree. Now, you can go with your gut and not go to college but remember that you are 80% likely to fail. Why? Because college teaches you how to finish something with lack of money, sleep, social life and time. That’s what a business requires. But if you can do that in college, you always translate it into anything else.
sorry but at the same time like why alot of them dudes didnt like the coach
This film gives us an excellent reflection
can i make a joke?
Only lucky ones get a teacher like coach carter
I didnt know Nick Fury can get you to college. Let alone letting you into SHIELD or Avengers
Is it the best 2005 movie?
I wish every teacher would care about their students and tell them abou the cold world after school
I graduated from college, but I sure as hell don't have "a better life". 😞
It's a bit disappointing that a teacher/coach like Coach Carter is so rare that there is value in making a film about it.
who dat asian guy in their team i dont see him playing in their games
Lord this man had to fight to help these kids and he fought and cared about their futures more than just about everybody, including the kids themselves. These are the kinds of educators/coaches these (edit: all ) kids deserve. Though you don't necessarily have to go to college to be successful, you can learn a trade and make good bank. But if you are looking for a career in a sport, playing that sport in college is the next logical step towards that goal.
Coach Carter should have been president instead of Obama..
if its always someone elses fault, you will never have power to be better. if you accept that no matter what happens your choices directly affect the outcome, before, during, and after, than you have foundation. if you usr that foundation to analyze your choices and can find causality, you have knowledge. applying that knowledge means making different choices to affect outcomes. thats a skill. refining that skill over time brings wisdom and discernment. thats power.
go forth and accept that where you are is your responsibility, what happens to you is caused by you. what you did 10 years ago affects your life today. become powerful. learn to choose.
