Teacher: Mrs. Peterson, I need to speak with you about a, um, special student joining your class... Mrs. Peterson: You know my rule, they pull their weight or fail. No special treatment. Teacher: I'm not asking for - Mrs. Peterson: Well, you'd better not be. Remember last year? I had to fail one of your "Special cases." She could barely read or write! Teacher: She was an eight-year-old certified math genius who has just been adopted from Romania!! Mrs. Peterson: No special treatment means no special treatment! Read or fail - no exceptions!
