Heartbreaking Simpsons Moments 1/∞: Bart Gets an F
This scene was so real to me as a kid because I was struggling with school at the time, too. I think pretty much every kid I knew who saw this episode talked about it at school as being one of the most realistic things they’d seen on tv in a long time. Bart’s always portrayed as a screw up but when he honestly tries his best and can’t succeed it’s just so honestly painful.
But then when Bart went into that speech in which he showed how much he had actually learned and understood through an oral response and he ended up passing!*
Beautiful! TEACHERS: differentiate assessment AND instruction! Don’t set students up for failure!
*he probably even deserved much higher than just a passing mark btw.
Definitely one of my favourite Krabapple moments.
We lost Earl Ragnar, our favorite Beta fish.
& we were sure to give him a viking’s funeral as such a magnificent fish as he deserves.
See you in Valhalla my friend.
Sail, Ragnar. Sail.
This is so incredible!
