A Stevie Production
You have a very bright, scientifically minded son named Alex... he managed to come in first in last year's citywide science fair in competition with dozens of other schools... and you are very proud of him.
Unfortunately, this year he has landed the teacher from hell... stupid, arrogant, and in your opinion, completely unsuited to teach anybody, let alone your gifted son.
You and your son both despise Mr. Hilliker - you have, of course, faithfully attended parent teacher interviews - and you have, rather unfortunately, allowed Alex to see that you share his opinion of the man.
Today, Alex has come home with a note from the teacher and a detention.
How do you respond to this?
