Pa’s righteous rage is back this week when Miss Beadle is fired for being unable to control the behaviors of some older boys in class, and the school board hires a tyrannical psychopath named Mr. Applewood in her place. Poor Laura takes the brunt of his wrath until the savior of Walnut Grove (Charles Ingalls) eloquently Matlocks (it’s a verb now) the fuming Mr. Applewood right outta town.
We discuss the crazy things teachers are expected to put up with, our frustration with some continuity issues in Little House (where’d Miss Beadle’s fancy house go?), and how inappropriate it would have been for Charles to be in Miss Beadle’s apartment alone with her.
