Student Wins Art Contest to Spite Rude Art Teacher

Sometimes teachers misjudge their students, like this teacher who underestimated their students during a social experiment. Other times, the powers that be can be mistaken and disrespectful, like this staff who made a student wait to report a fire. In this case, it was an art teacher who was soundly put in their place after handing down some harsh criticism. Art is subjective, anyway.

Scientific Diagrams That Look Like Jokes

Sometimes it takes a doodle to make a textbook funny, and other times it just takes a lack of context. Here are some scientific diagrams that probably serve some actual purpose when placed in their original context, but otherwise look weird, stupid and creepy. Without that though, boy do they look dumb and awesome.

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. It escalated to such an extent that they ultimately found themselves being shunned, and suspended from school. Pretty wild that it evolved into a "gambling ring." Whoops.

You might think that you've cringed hard before, but you haven't seen this dude try to get a class riled up before an exam, before. All of his fiery, emboldened passion is met with a devastating tidal wave of gross indifference from the rest of the classroom.

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.

Wild and Awkward Junk said by Teachers

We've been out of school for a little bit so maybe things haven't changed much, but damn teachers used to get away with saying some absolutely wild stuff. Some were great, most were fine, but some could be wrong and dumb or just awkward bullies. Sometimes bad teachers got their comeuppance, like this strict teacher who told a student not to speak and it totally backfired. Kids can be weird too, like in these weird and stupid school stories.
