You sound like my first born. He once (this just one of many, many examples) had an english teacher (gr 10) who told the class to write what they thought about a particular poem, after the class had discussed it. He wrote what he thought. He got an F. This was close to the beginning of the school year, so I went in to discuss it with her. She wasn't happy that he didn't include any of the things she had presented to the class about its meaning, plus he only wrote one paragraph instead of a whole page. Well, did you tell them they had to? No, she says, she expected them to understand that. So you told him to write what he thought, which he did...

Once in summer school, the teacher for that english class calls us after a week (6 week program), and I'm thinking oh crap, and then he says he's going to give him one more assignment and then pass him, so he doesn't need to come anymore because he thinks he's too smart to be wasting his time in summer school.
