Crash Course - Corrections

So far we've learned that the teacher in this class couldn't read in a normal manner and that Trav is a genius by suggesting all of us take turns reading various parts of the textbook. That's great because we could then focus on what we were reading. But some of the students had issues with reading as well. One of them was Budd. He told me he went to a special school along with Don because they supposedly had learning issues. After spending a few minutes helping Budd to read more easily I concluded that whoever was teaching him didn't care or was on the same level of teaching ability as the instructor of this driving class. Budd wasn't stupid and he learned very quickly. During one of the classes though...

Mr. Kent corrected Budd while he was trying his best to read the textbook. The man who couldn't read correctly was correcting someone who was actually pronouning the actual word he was reading instead of saying something completely unrelated. I could tell it hurt Budd's confidence because of the manner Kent used when he corrected him. Needless to say, I was infuriated by his action and let him know it through my expression. He turned quite pale and tried to shrug it off as if he never said anything. Luckily for the rest of us he never corrected anybody again.
