A friend of mine was not as circumspect. His stepson had been expelled from an expensive private school for venting his frustration in class (in the days prior to social media). He called the teacher “a stupid son of a bitch” in front of the student body.
The teacher had been lecturing on the First Crusade and regaled the students with the erroneous fact that the People's Crusade, as it was popularly known, achieved a great victory over the Jews and Muslims at Constantinople. They hadn't won a victory. They had murdered Christians who left the city to welcome their brethren in Christ from the west. The boy had politely interrupted to correct the teacher, and volunteered to retrieve a text from the library to prove his assertion. The teacher refused to discuss the issue, going so far as to humiliate the boy in front of his classmates.
My friend explained that the boy's conduct was unacceptable regardless of the teacher's error and behavior. The boy agreed to apologize to the teacher in front of the class and my friend made the arrangements.
After the apology was delivered and the boy was readmitted to the class, my friend took the teacher aside and offered some texts that he had purchased as gifts for the teacher so that the scholar could correct his understanding of the history. The teacher refused them without grace.
My friend was a voice actor. He possessed a fine, booming baritone voice that he could wield with romantic gentleness or in vicious assault. He chose the latter form as he announced in tones that rang throughout the school, “He's right. You are an ignorant son of a bitch!” and withdrew his stepson from the school.
Of course, the producers of Blue Bloods could not have included that in their script. They restrained themselves and delivered a believable portrayal of a teacher who practices intellectual bullying in her classroom much as is commonly found these days, and students and their parents who cannot fight back without suffering consequences. I have never seen nor heard of any other entertainment media being so honest.
