Catholic School – steppin’ up to the math

Little Zachary was doing very badly in math.

His parents had tried
everything…tutors, mentors,

flash cards, special learning

In short, everything they could think

of to help his math.

Finally, in a last ditch effort, they
took Zachary down and enrolled him In the local Catholic school. After the
first day, little Zachary came home with a very serious look on his face. He
didn’t even kiss his mother hello.   Instead, he went
straight to his room and started studying.

Books and papers were spread out all
over the room and little Zachary was hard at work. His mother was amazed. She
called him down to dinner.

To her shock, the minute he was done,
he marched back to his room without a word, and in no time, he was back hitting
the books as hard as before.

This went on for some time, day after
day, while the mother tried to understand what made all the difference.

Finally, little Zachary brought home
his report Card.. He quietly laid it on the table, went up to his room and hit

the books. With great trepidation, His
Mom looked at it and to her great surprise, Little Zachary got an ‘A’ in
math.   She could no longer hold her curiosity.. She went to his room and said,
‘Son, what was it? Was it the nuns?’ Little Zachary looked at her and shook his
head, no.. ‘Well, then,’ she replied, Was it the books, the discipline, the
structure, the uniforms? WHAT WAS IT?’

Little Zachary looked at her and said,
‘Well, on the first day of school when I saw that guy nailed to the plus sign,
I knew they weren’t fooling around.’
