:badair: It just jumped into my head that, well, it's always been depicted that a student brings an apple to school for the teacher. My feeble mind just made the connection to the apple=knowledge thing in the bible. Also that whenever this dipiction origionated, it would have also been well known that it was an offering (illuminated) in hope of a benefit of good grades? And what is a grade, in my mind grade is a terminology used in construction. And I guess education is a construction of sorts. Any hoo, hope everyone is well, if anyone has any brain farts of their own, please add on! :sunny:

lol



Giving an apple to a teacher is also the origin for the term "apple-polisher," which was first recorded in the late 1920s. Apple-polishers, also referred to as bootlickers or toadies (among other, even worse nicknames), aren't always favorably looked upon by other students. We suggest hanging onto the fruit, and using it to keep certain health professionals at bay.



The apple is not a symbol of the teacher directly but of the knowledge the teacher imparts to the students.

Apples have been considered a symbol of knowledge mainly due to the common belief that it was an apple that Eve pulled from the forbidden tree of knowledge to give to Adam.

I raised rabbits when I was in school. The teacher always wondered why I gave her rasinets.
Our people are not gone they are merely lost, they cannot find their path forward because they do not know where they have come from.
