Orthodox in Catholic School

The little Orthodox Jewish boy, David was having trouble at school, in fact he was kicked out of the school. His parents not knowing what to do asked a social worker. She said, "for the good of the child he must go to a public school, you see he needs more freedom to express himself!" The parents are in shock, our boy in a public school???!!

In the end, they sent David to the school. The second day this third grader was expelled. The parents returned to the social worker asking what to do now. "You see," the social worker says, "David really needs more structure, and it was my mistake. You must send him to a military academy." "What our son in the army..."

They send him to the academy and after 2 days he's courtmartiled and expelled. Not knowing what to do they go back to the social worker. She says, "There is only one alternative, that's a Catholic school."

The parents are in shock, "our child David, going to them!!" But in the end they send him. David becomes the perfect student. At the end of the year the seniors ask him to speak to the graduating class.

First, the parents ask him, "nu, David, first our school, then the public school, then the military school, nothing worked. Why all of a sudden, with the Catholics you become the model student??

David looks at his father and says "Dad, the first day the Mother Superior sat me down in the chair and pointed above the chalkboard and said, 'see that, that's the last Jewish boy that misbehaved here'".
