I was Always a Dunce in Class

In La Salle grade school and high school, I was lied to, deceived, deluded, confused, laughed at, bullied, frightened, and bamboozled by our teachers in class. Especially in the subject of religion and history.,. During the first day of the week, on Mondays, I was always chastised by our Principal for getting failing marks in most of the subjects in my Report Card. I was always famous as a class Dunce. It seemed so alarmingly obvious, if not apparently translucent that I found it hard to take my teachers seriously. I always doubted the veracity in what my teachers took for granted, that is, I should have no problem in believing or having faith in this or that. Indeed, every time I had the opportunity to rebel against my teachers, I did so which finally lead to my getting expelled out of first year high school. Poch Suzara

Poch, I'm a little confused. Please clarify. Were you expelled because of your failing grades, or for being a troublemaker?

Ken, Expelled because of my failing grades, and for being a trouble maker, but really because I refused to be a frightened BELIEVER. I wanted to learn how to be a brightened THINKER! Cheers! Poch
