    What’s wrong with his attitude? He’s only a decent handful. It’s not like he’s brought a gun to class!

    he hasn’t learned yet that you can’t win an argument with Caulfield.

    It must be time for Principal Spaetzel to have Caulfield taught calculus, Latin, the Classics etc. Give him something hard & useful to learn, rather than time to be ‘smart’.

    We use a lot of Latin roots, prefixes, and suffixes in English, especially in medical terminology and scientific classifications, so it could be useful to someone like Caufield. I can even imagine him reading primary sources from the first century in Latin just for fun—because he can!

    Up until about 1960, Latin was a required subject in our rural PA high school (and many others). Being a dead language that never changes, words mean exactly what they always meant. Unlike say English, which is always evolving.

    Caulfield needs to go to Stuyvesant or Bronx Science or his local “magnet school” where he’ll meet other kids who are smarter than he is. Our society spends all kinds of money training people to play games that need lots of people and lots of equipment and cause lots of injuries; but the bigger bang for the buck is making sure people like Caulfield wind up using their brains to create and invent and improve society.

    Caulfield could wind up like that genius in “3 Idiots.”

    I suggest very strongly that your thought of Latin being useless is wrong. Anyone who pursues a career in the sciences or health professions will benefit GREATLY from having had formal training in Latin and/or Greek. Most of the terms learned in those disciplines are based upon Latin and Greek. Instead of learning a bunch of what appear to be “meaningless syllables”… when a person learns technical terms of science AFTER knowing some basic Latin and/or Greek…. these “meaningless syllables” actually now have meaning and value and the task of learning these terms is far, far more successful.

    Caulfield is a good kid that loves to give his teachers a hard time.

    My dad did when he went to High School. Rode the bus to school with a rifle, brought it to school kept it in his locker until rifle club. Fired it on campus during the club. No one had any issues back then. Everyone understood that we were all responsible for our own actions and that guns were tools not sentient beings.

    The vigorous defense of studying Latin here surprises me – in a good way. Probably just the Frazz demographic.
