**Contains Spoilers** In this episode Kevin tries to cheat in his math class in order to raise his grade. He sees several other students cheating and getting away with it so he figures why not? This episode stars one of my absolute favorite characters of the show, Mr. Collins. That character reminds me so much of my Uncle Ed. My Uncle Ed, like Collins, was the smartest man I've ever encountered. The things he taught me and the way that he taught me was beyond anything any other teacher had ever done. He told me that he plans to die with a piece of chalk in his hand.
Mr. Collins really cares about Kevin and about math and about teaching. Beyond my Uncle, I have never had a teacher in real school that was anything close to what Mr Collins is on this show. My teachers could care less about the students, or really teaching them anything, nor did they have the intelligence to even be able to teach like MR Collins did. I love all 3 episodes that Collins appears in. His methods are amazing.
When Kevin cheated, or when he asked for help in the previous Mr Collins episode or when he hands him the test with all these rude remarks for answer in the later episode, most teachers would've been so politically correct in how they handled those situations. Never doing anything that would ultimately teach the student anything or make him or her a better person. MR Collins, we need more like you! I was sad to read that the actor that played him died in 2009 :(
