Don't Punish the Rich
Pakistan's Best XI

In The Public School

A good reason to keep education out of government hands:

I had a high-school history teacher who was an avowed Marxist. I was not, to put it mildly. My confrères told me to go along to get along. Few of them bought the teacher’s line, but they were willing to repeat it for a grade.

One day, we students showed up and there was no teacher. Very unusual. We waited for some minutes until he finally came in. I said, “What’s the matter, Mr. X, was the lecture late off the wire from Moscow this morning?” to general laughter.

For the first and only time in my school career, my father had to come in, as I was tagged as a disciplinary problem.

Pure gold.
