Goofs

Character error 

Grading the students' papers, Miss Halsey marks Tristan's essay test as "Stupid point Misspelled" circling the word "layer" (which is lawyer without a W). However, she misses the more obviously misspelled word "lawer" (lawyer without a Y), and overlooks the use of "whose" instead of "who's".

Continuity 

When Elizabeth and Lynn go out to eat, the lipstick on Elizabeth's lips changes shades in several scenes; close ups show her wearing a dark red, while other shots show a light pink.
When Elizabeth is watching television on New Year's Eve and her roommate is talking to her, she dips a whole corn dog into the mustard. In the next shot, the corn dog is eaten almost to the middle.

Factual errors 

Ms. Squirrel could not transfer out of a district, only within. To go outside their district, the teacher needs to apply as a new employee.
When Ms. Squirrel eats the apple covered in poison ivy, she rubs it on her face which results in a rash where she rubbed it. However she would have also had this rash on her lips and mouth, but she does not.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

The same exact shot of a student in Ms Squirrel's class is shown at two different times in the movie. However, this is used as a comical shot to show how this student feels about Ms. Squirrel's class.
Elizabeth is seen collecting cans from the school in order to pay for breast implants. Illinois does not have existing container deposit laws, however, Elizabeth could have earned money through selling the cans for their aluminum value to a recycling center.

Revealing mistakes 

When Elizabeth is checking her online bank account. The URL reads "/online/banking/account/", but has no domain.
At the beginning of the film, Elizabeth Halsey speeds backwards violently past a school bus and makes a sharp turn leaving visible tire marks on the ground. You can see tire marks on the ground before she creates them and were probably created in previous takes.
