Ratburn, to me, is, while obviously exaggerated, the perfect representation of a tough teacher that every kid faces, I'm sure there are kids out there who can look at Mr. Ratburn and say, "Oh, I had a teacher like that in such-and-such grade"
I know, many of the Arthur situations and characters parallel to common situations that many children face. I have to admit that I did have my fair share of teachers like Mr. Ratburn. One personal memory of a teacher like that is from my high school (10th grade) chemistry class. My teacher decided one day to teach us about alpha, beta, and gamma decay, despite never having taught us nuclear chemistry before. Pretty much every student had no idea what was going on. We eventually figured it out, but it seems like something Mr. Ratburn would do.

(believe it or not, I can say I had a teacher like Mr. Pricejones in second grade).

Does that mean you learned Latin by second grade? That's pretty good.  ;)
