Can You Spell PC?

An elementary school in Scotland designated its first grade classes 1A and 1B -- until the parents of some children in 1B complained that the name made their kids feel inferior to 1A. So, the classes are now named 1AR and 1AP, where "r" and "p" are the initials of the teachers' names. Apparently, at this school, first-graders don't learn to fully alphabetize their inferiority if you bury it in the second letter.
