K: Hi, M. How was your week?
M: (He laughs.) Fine.
K knows M is laughing because he only attended one day of school this week because it was closed for vacation.
K: You know education is really important. Your mom and I want you to do well so you can go to college.
M: I don’t want to go to college.
K: Yes you do.
M: I’m going to be a mechanic.
K: Mechanics need good educations, too.
M: They do?
K: Yes, they do.
M: They fix stuff.
K: Sometimes they have to write stuff. They have to know math, too.
M: I know math.
K: Yes, you do, but you need to learn more math to be a mechanic.
M thinks this over and then discusses how he just does not like the teachers at his school. Is M just plan bored in class or is something else going on?
