I am with Elly on this one. We have seen none of this in Michael at school or at home. Michael is the kid who refuses to do his homework and spends school nights out at the mall until 10 pm. We have seen prior parent-teacher conferences (interviews?) in this comic strip where the teacher struggled to find something good to say about Michael. Plus, what the teacher is saying is odd. “Listens well,” “Gets along with others,” etc. sounds like this teacher is saying generic things about a kid he doesn’t actually know.
