I once went to the principal’s office in like first or second grade for “holding a pretzel stick in my mouth like a cigarette.” They made me call my parents.

There was a nun in my grade school who used to make this girl pull her extremely curly back in rubber bands because it was “disgusting” worn down. She also told her that her mother didn’t love her.

When I was about 8 I did a report on the Wright brothers first powered flight near Kitty Hawk. I guess my teacher thought Kitty Hawk sounded like the name of a plane so she changed my report in red pen to say “in the Kitty Hawk” and took points away from my total score.

in 1st grade my teacher was showing us how to add -ed to the end of a word to make it past tense. When a word ended in an e, she made us erase the e then add ed. I asked why not just add a d instead of erasing and she got mad at me. I’ve been questioning authority ever since

One time when I was in third grade, we were grading each others multiplication tests, and this girl marked one of my answers wrong, claiming my 2 looked like a Z. That’s the day I realized I hate America.

I never capitalize “god”.
Because there’s a multitude.

My kindergarten teacher would screech “no white spots” when we were coloring, so to spite her I started coloring everything in very carefully the wrong color and making the people aliens and shit
She was not amused 😂

My kid got griped at for coloring her half of Earth Black. When the teacher got onto her, she explained “It’s the night side!”

10th grade English we performed scenes from Macbeth. Kareem and I put in time rehearsing ACT 5: scene 8. We made swords out of wood, wore kilts, had weird Scottish accents lol. Teacher gave us 99%. When I asked why we didn’t get 100% he said he never gives 100

I went to school where some teachers checked our notebooks. Like if we didn’t have the notes exactly how they wanted them it would hurt your grade. Doodles were right out. So was understanding things differently. They also controlled what color folder went with what class.

I became radicalized in junior kindergarten. My mother had taught me to read and write cursive before school started. I did my printing assignment and then wrote it in cursive at the bottom of the page. Teacher tore it up & called a meeting with my parents. “Bow to mediocrity”
