Goodbye Miss Beatle?
23 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When some older boys start to cause trouble, Miss Beatle is replaced by a man that most of the school board thought would do a better job at handling the disciple problem.

The man was a monster and crazy, to say the least. He immediately deemed Laura a problem child and picked on her for everything. I thought Charles should have stepped in much earlier than he did, actually. The man was a monster and should have been fired immediately. Mrs. Olsen lost a lot of my respect in this episode as well (not that she had much of it to begin with). What she did to Laura was incomprehensible! She's done some mean and spiteful things, but that was a little much - even for her!

I won't give away the things that Laura was accused of or the punishments she got, but let me tell you that if my child had been treated like that, the teacher would have been getting what for really fast! Anyways, Charles stepped in and restored peace and order. Everything returned to normal.

As for Mr. Crabapple - or whatever his name was - I hope he never got another teaching job again!
