Exam Season

Students in the Sandbox began their mid-term exams yesterday. In the next few days we will likely see reports [if they are published in the newspapers] of students assaulting their teachers. Happens every year. It will be interesting to see what Sabria Jawhar has to say. She certainly had plenty to say about a headmistress who she thinks should have taken the "high road" when a 20-year-old student broke a glass over her head.

Telling, isn't it, that yesterday's Saudi Gazette published this cartoon on the front page, depicting a student getting ready to beat his teacher with a ruler:

If it wasn't so accurate, it would almost be comical.
