    This kid’s really got a future. Pity this is "just’ a comic strip. It’d be interesting to see how this free-thinker develops.

    As Michael Ford said, “It’d be interesting to see how this free-thinker develops.” Yes, it will if the public school system doesn’t crush his spirit before he can escape. The public schools don’t serve students like Caulfield. At all.

    You’re taking a common (but narrow) view. Public schools take all that don’t opt for something else. What they get will often draw unfavorable attention. Private schools don’t need to put up with that. At the same time, there are just as many bright students who get teachers that will help them develop into contributing adults. Those schools just don’t use the kids to advertise.

    Also unadvertised are the private schools that take the money to house kids that don’t do anything. I’ve worked in private schools where classes of 40-50 students are placed in two rooms and “visited” by a teacher that is supervising the whole group. Hard work and not too great in science lab courses.

    As a public school teacher, I’ve seen over a hundred “new students” coming into my class after the end of their “final season”. Many were behavior problems that were tolerated as long as the team was winning.

    They just don’t brag about it.

    I guess that would depend on the percentage for a passing grade. Considering inspiration is negligible (because most of us didn’t really care) and perspiration is equivalent to effort then inspiration would be the remaining quantity. In my day the passing grade was 70% correct without curve considerations.

    Public schools are nothing more than employee factories.

    You’re still not finished sorting out the smart from the stupid, Mr. Mallett? After multitudinous attempts??

    70% of what? On T⁄F, 50% means no blanks. 75% if you know half of the answers.

    Multiple choice lowers that to 20–25%; but actual questions might be zero.

    @Michael Ford

    With Caufield’s ethics it’s just as well he’s fiction, his future looks like a petty crook.
