College professor says:

Such rawness in a pupil is a shame;
High school preparation is to blame.

High school teacher says:

Good heavens, what crudity—the boy's a fool,
The fault of course is the grammar school.

Grade school teacher cries:

From such stupidity may I be spared,
They send them to me so unprepared.

Kindergarten teacher says:

Such lack of training did I never see—
What kind of is woman must the mother be?

Mother laments:

Poor helpless child—he is not to blame,
His father's folks are just the same.
