  1. I love the comment from 1987 about the teacher making her students rewrite the work they do on the computer bcuase she doesn’t feel like they actually do the work. Thanks for sharing this, I’ll be adding this book to my “must read” list.

  2. This quote has been debunked as fiction. It was part of a humerous piece written in 1978. The fact it permeates the internet as an actual quote is crazy!
