At the Parent-Teacher conference, the discussion focused on little Billy’s low grades.
“As Billy’s teacher,” Mrs. Crabtree began, “I can assure you that I’ve done everything to encourage the boy to learn the material. He simply lacks the capacity to learn along side the other students.”
“This is terrible news that you’re telling us,” cried Billy’s mother. “Surely there must be something positive you can tell us about our boy.”
“I can only think of one thing,” sighed the teacher. “With grades like this, he’s obviously not cheating.”
