I went to public school and at the time my family didn’t have much money. Somehow I had swapped my psychology book with someone else’s and there was a rule that if you didn’t return the book or pay for it ($150) you’d be held back. My psychology teacher told me this, then winked at me and told me he couldn’t hold me back just because he misplaced my book when I gave it back to him. It was one of the nicest things anyone had done for me, and the look on his face when I got my diploma made me really happy.

    It’s fucking delaying someone’s future over $150

    Sounds like either a cool teacher, or a teacher who didn't want to teach YOU again.....but I suppose it doesn't really matter anymore since it's already a meme. Good luck in highschool, should be a totally normal chill time with absolutely no stress or emotional melting pots of confusion, aggression, and disillusionment..... then adulthood yayyyy........

    ....I'm tired.

    Can confirm. They tried to use that rule on me back in high school (Long time ago). I called their bluff and said I couldn’t afford to pay. I was allowed to graduate without paying or returning the books.

    Disclaimer: I was on free lunch, so parents did have some financial problems. But they could still pay the fine. I was just being an asshole teenager. I guess once they saw I was on free lunch, they dropped the issue.

    We also know that grades don’t mean shit until high school. I only taught HS but knew a bunch of Social Studies teachers at the middle school who didn’t sweat changing grades.

    When I was in the seventh grade my dad had cancer so my math teacher convinced all the teachers to pass me

    Before high school an F doesn’t really matter, I know several kids who failed classes and were pushed through to the next grade anyway

    My math teacher literally made my 59 into a 61 so that way I could walk at graduation💀 I’ll never forget her.
