Whatever happened to school being for learning, anymore? Now it's all politics. This is probably the same teacher that would have you leave the room for correcting their mistake.
Perhaps the other students should pick up their game, get their thumbs out of their arses and be productive in a timely and efficient manner? [Wow, parent mode on! lol] Initiative, organization, planning, self discipline and elbow grease are some of the skills needed if you want to be a high academic achiever and push the scholastic boundaries so you can be all you can be. One does not get far resting on ones' laurels.
When I was a kid and didn't know the meaning of something, I would ask my mum who would tell me to look it up for myself. And we didn't have computers or smart phones to get the answer in an instant. There was a book called a dictionary & it had the information I needed to learn the meaning or spelling of something without having to worry if it was from a reliable source or edited by some punk with a computer. Seek and ye shall find.
Apparently being a slacker and doing jack shit are the preferred traits in a student these days... Hell yea!
I had a friend that dropped a class because she couldn't work ahead. I, on the other hand, dropped classes because I couldn't do the work.
When I started college my advisor said I would be ready for the calculus program even though I had only taken precalculus in high school. The first assignment my professor started with, "If you're in this class you should already know..." And listed off 15 things with only one I had ever even heard of. I was at least 15 classes behind the first week. Sooooo... Needless to say I dropped that class.
