'I let him off easy with an F in the class': Professor regrades student's paper after they 'felt strongly they deserved a better grade'

One teacher was asked to take a closer look at a student's paper ---the student wasn't happy with their B minus grade. College professors do a lot of work for a little bit of money. This person, u/sushkunes, writes that when they were a “poorly paid and overworked adjunct professor,” they had an experience with an entitled student that stuck with them. After you read this story, check out this guy who decided to call their HOA every single time they put their trash out to the curb.

‘The students were on their feet, cheering': High school teacher's assignment backfires when one student uses it to break the rules

‘The students were on their feet, cheering': High school teacher's assignment backfires when one student uses it to break the rules

High school memories arise from time to time, evoking mixed feelings, and causing me to wonder, why does anyone ever say that they are the best years of your life? The teachers never liked me all that much, being the hyper kid I was, who despised homework and could not focus for one minute in class, and the other students kind of bored me. Maybe it was the school itself, who knows? Perhaps others have had better luck. In any case, I can remember that when students broke the rules, the rest of t…

'My classmates knew me as the sleeper': 20+ people confess what they were most known for in high school

Everyone has at least ten cringe memories from high school and perhaps a few wholesome ones too. For me, it's mostly cringe but every so often I remember that one time I knocked my Halloween costume out of the park or when I got a big solo in chorus. For the most part, though, I'm just like everyone else. I was known for something, and that was being in the school plays. I was largely protected from ridicule, though, because my theater kid status meant I did have some cooler, older friends. But…

'I decided right then that, no matter what, I wasn't caving': Student refuses to do mandatory senior project, school's administration makes it their mission to get student to comply

This student is single-handedly tanking their school's project scores, and in typical teenage fashion, they don't care about the project at all. By senior year of high school , a lot of students are fully checked out. At that age, you probably have a car, a job, and dreams of life after high school, like attending college or moving out of your parent's place. Senior year rolls around and students find it hard to take it seriously. High school is so close to no longer mattering to you that schoo…

'My essay doesn't need any citations because my opinions are fact': 35+ Teachers who taught pretentious know-it-all students

As if teachers don't have enough on their plates, they sometimes get students who think they don't need to learn anymore , because they already know all there is to know.

You've been in school for over a decade, and you think that now that you've passed a calc class or two, you may as well take a break from learning. When I was a senior in high school, a teacher told me that by…

'Teacher [tries to ruin] Senior Skip Day': Teacher wants to fail students if they don't show up for test, students get even after a round of golf

'Ham in [my] public school lunch is just frozen in a block of ice': 25 Strange school lunches that left students still hungry

The cafeteria chefs who cook for public school kids are doing a very important job, but the meals they serve up can sometimes miss the mark. I want to take this opportunity to use my platform to talk about Italian dunkers. These were a top tier lunch food , and as a very picky child, it was my saving grace. These Italian dunkers were basically just mozzarella cheese sticks wrapped inside dough, but they tasted heavenly. Looking back, giving an 8-year-old four cheese sticks for lunch with a side…

‘You wanted me to do the speech, deal with it’: Professor gets even with Dean after being ordered to make a speech for 150 students

The power struggle between different forces in high school is real… in this case, OP relayed a high school experience that left them in everlasting awe of their mechanography teacher. Whenever an important date approached, all the students would line up in the courtyard, standing still in formation as one of the teachers would do a speech about whatever day it was and the importance of it. Said speeches would amount to maybe 10-15 minutes, which was fair, because keeping 150 teenagers lined up…

'Faces dropped... She starts back pedaling': Teachers hold student back from graduation, student complies by leaving school early

There are a surprising amount of people who fail gym class . I know what you're thinking — how can someone possibly fail gym class? I completely understand how. If you don't want to get sweaty and smell gross all day long, you can't run, and therefore, you might fail. It's a sacrifice many are willing to make, to the fury of our gym teachers. It's just not possible to run several miles and not get sweaty, and I recall classmates of mine who did run their laps. They were basically sweaty all day…

School picture day photographers have us in stitches with these tales of the strangest and cringiest things they've ever encountered. Because as you can imagine, photographing hundreds of students at a time could easily be hilarious. High school is a time for experimenting with your personality and identity.
