    I suspect that in the real world any teacher discussing students’ grades with school staff outside of the teaching front would be fired summarily. And any staff outside of the teaching front caught snooping into students’ grades would quickly meet the same fate.

    It might mean bad S.A.T. scores.

    Another possibility, because the kids regard Frazz as their friend, they show him their work sometimes! You people jumped to the likely WRONG conclusion. Frazz has always demonstrated an almost Buddhist sense of religion and morality.

    The kid probably showed them to Frazz himself. With all due respect, you’re over-thinking a comic strip.

    There are several past strips in which Frazz has been privy to Caulfield’s grades and test papers, in the context of an office discussion including the principal and Mrs. Olsen trying to figure out what to do with him. My favorite is the series on standardized tests, where Caulfield creates a pointallist Mona Lisa and a bar code (among other things) on the bubble sheet. Such conferences among the staff are not unusual, and are for the long-term benefit of the student (Calufield, while brilliant, has not yet learned when to hold ‘em and when to fold ’em, and if he doesn’t learn this before moving up to middle and high school, he may find himself the smartest guy flipping burgers at McD’s). I wouldn’t normally expect a janitor to be involved in such discussions, but this is the “Frazz” universe, and the janitor being being pretty much the equal of any teacher or administrator is one of the things you accept when you enter.
