23 times The Simpsons were right about school

We all loved the show and can recall sitting down at 6pm every evening for the new instalment of the comedic family on our screens. However, we have realised that there were times that The Simpsons were right about school!


1. When the teacher oversimplified everything for one student

And it angered you so much

2. Having to be silly characters in the school play

Which you parents would never even come to watch anyway

3. Going to Catholic school meant saying the prayers every day

*Yawn*

4. Knowing that Teachers loved Training days more than you ever did

5. There were still those kids who were immature

No matter what year you were in

6. And that you knew the teacher didn't mark your essay

Because you received the same mark as Steven, and Steven can't spell his name

7. You had to do stupid tasks that wouldn't get you through life

8. And they never reminded you of important things

9. And would put the TV on just to shut everyone up

10. There was always that one teacher who loved school

And it made you hate them even more

11. As well as those rumours that were made up every year

But seemed to travel around every single school

12. There was always that teacher who forgot who you were

When they taught you for 5 years

13. And the whole school would go into Military Meltdown due to Ofsted

14. And your legit reason for not completing homework was never believed

15. The teachers would state the obvious

16. And debates in the classroom would just make you angry

17. And there was that one student who was upset when they didn't get an A*

But they still got an A...

8. The rumour about the kid who cheated in an exam with a water bottle

9. And loving that teacher who wanted class to be over as much as you did

10. Feeling as if you have accomplished absolutely nothing

21. As well as getting distracted by the jerks at the back of the classroom

22. And attempting to complete projects with crap school supplies

23. And lastly, having that one teacher that took everything a little too far.
