Everybody sit in a desk in a nice straight line. Put your head down and take a nap when you’re told. Be on time or you’re in trouble. Learn at the same speed as the person next to you – even if the person next to you is a friggin’ moron! It’s fair, it’s fair that Johnny is a dumb ass and Timmy is smart and that Timmy has to slow down his learning unless Timmy goes into a special place for the accelerated gifted child. Where he will work harder and get the same.”
