Student's Super Smash Bros Business Project Spirals Out Of Control

This student's business project that involved people competing on Super Smash Bros really ended up taking on a life of its own.

Students Mess With Teacher's Plants, Teacher Takes Pro Revenge

This teacher/dad used his apparent superpower of not being affected by poison ivy, poison oak, or poison sumac to teach some rascal students a valuable lesson in not messing with people's plants. Just picturing their faces when they learned about the stunt that dad had pulled is enough to put a smile on the face. Outside of that glorious lesson, this dad is well on his way to being Poison Ivy's most feared enemy.

Put the right teacher in front of them that can get them excited about the whole academic process, and you might actually end up with more stories like this wholesome gem from Raifa Rafiq.

Professor Turns Into Total Nightmare, Dean Saves The Day

We're talking Professor Umbridge from Harry Potter levels of toxic from this teacher, folks. Yes, by the sound of it this teacher was a disaster from the start. Fortunately, one particular student ran the issue back to the dean of the school, who intervened after assuring the student that they wouldn't have to worry about passing the class. With that kind of free (and totally warranted) pass, the pressure completely dissipated. They actually managed to have some fun with the whole situation. The lesson that the teacher hopefully learned would be to teach the actual material that the students are paying thousands of dollars to learn.

Karen And Karen Jr. Try To Cheat School System, Get Outed

Revenge is most certainly sweet, and best served by FERPA. Karen and Karen Jr. thought that they were so sly. The mother and daughter team had worked out a system where Karen (the teacher) would pull the necessary strings to get Karen Jr. (her daughter) all the accommodations one could need to ace a test without any effort at all. Of course, cheaters never win, and someone always finds out in the end. The Karens ultimately had to pay the price for all their BS.

Twitter Thread: Girl Endures Teasing For Anxious Friend

This heartwarming thread tells the story of a courageous, selfless girl enduring rounds of rude teasing from her classmates, because she was committed to helping out her socially anxious friend. Turns out her friend was too nervous to ask the questions herself, so this girl would do it for her. She'd ask so many questions that the teacher would start to give her a hard time. That's just not cool, teach. Either way, this is a pure reflection of a beautiful friendship.
