It all depends on what age you are.
Personally I was being cruelly treated at the age of four when in a Sisters-of-Mercy home in the early 1930s. I had to say the alphabet backwards by the time I was four and was beaten with a stick if I faltered. Many cruelties dealt out by these so called Sisters- of- Mercy. My parents finally got me back home in London in 1937 and I started school in Camberwell. It only lasted two years before the war started so I lost a lot of schooling during the London Blitz and being bombed out twice.
In 1941 I was evacuated to the Midlands where an old Baptiste Church was set aside for a makeshift school. I was at that school until 1944 when I left at the age of 14 to start work. I can only thank the three teachers that taught at that school for their dedication in teaching us choose what conditions we were taught in. I passed my 11+ to go to Grammar School but my mother could neither afford the uniform nor did she have the clothing coupons for it. Not that it worried me because I did not want to go to the Grammar School. I still have my sheet of paper written by the headmistress telling of how well I did at school because at that time one had to have a good reference to get a job.
I am still here to tell the tale and my family is guarding my old school reference which is carefully stashed away. :lol:

I went to a Catholic grade school for grades 2-8. Nothing pleasant or incredible there. High School had some good, some poor. I had some excellent professors in the university system.

Yeah, some were.. I had some good art teachers and the only class I got a fail in was an art class!
It was a mixed bag but in general most of my teachers were good. A couple were incredible..
