The one where Miss Edwards lectures a student about how he's got to learn things in order to succeed in life.

Synopsis: Today's strip is heavy-handed and ultimately wrong-headed moralizing about the importance of education done right. That's because the boy being lectured about how he has to learn things that he doesn't see the point to because he doesn't need to be held back by ignorance never appears again. Too bad that Lynn keeps hauling out Timothea In A Wheelchair when she wants to say "I learned it so you have too also" to the kids of the world.

Summary: The reason that I say this is because Lynn does not subvert her message (such as it is) by telling the character something different (but equally dubious) later on. This is why Alex Keaton was given an insta-friend so he could work out issues without killing off a regular.
