    Why don’t they just put Caulfield on “Independent Study”?
    (or don’t they have that in third grade?)

    @Leo Autodidact

    And lose all that comic material???

    Caufield could probably teach the math class.

    Caulfield would never do independent study if he was told to. He only pursues it because he’s not supposed to.

    I got demoted from 1-A to 1-B for reading ahead in the book…True story, Right here in Michigan!

    I had an English teacher tell me to stop reading ahead in the literature book. I just didn’t tell her I’d already read it when my brothers took the class. Imagine an English teacher telling a kid not to read!

    Just remember that the “teachers” all come from the same gene pool that produced the contributors to these comments.

    There are very few provisions for gifted children in the public schools nowadays, except perhaps in magnet schools. A typical school budgets six figures or more for so-called “special ed”, i.e., giving low-achieving students special interventions, but less than a thousand for gifted and talented.

    “Probably”? The way he’s portrayed, he could teach math to grad students at Cal Tech. I’d be curious to see his teaching style.

    OOH! I would have been in trouble.. I’d have all my textbooks read before class started.

    Caufield just goes his own way. He needs to be able to concentrate without ear plugs.

    Trust me, I can quite easily imagine it. I’m having a tough time imagining public school teachers enthusiastic about teaching, instead of just slogging through the days not doing anything of consequence.

    The reason she was like that is because she wasn’t much of a reader herself. That’s the funny thing about English majors – often they don’t like to read. I had one English professor tell the class how great Readers Digest condensed books were so he could browse through them fast and be ready to handle questions at parties. Hemingway even said English professors can’t write.

    That isn’t necessarily true.

    Would be banned everywhere if the NEA had it’s way.
