After a disastrous field trip, Edna and the teachers agree to a strike as they have had it with Skinner cutting the school's budget to the point that he's selling the kids' futures short (never mind that the kids don't grow up or age in any way on the show and the only kids with a chance to make something of themselves are Lisa Simpson and Martin Prince). While Bart revels in the strike by making mischief, Lisa is suffering from not being in a classroom setting, Milhouse gets tutored, and the PTA decides to hire neighborhood people as scab teachers.

Added DiffLines:

* LaserGuidedKarma: Bart is at first having the time of his life after manipulating the teachers into striking and then prolonging the strike to stay out of school (so he can cause even more chaos). And then he drives away his class's substitutes until Marge is forced to take over as teacher, which leads to untold humiliation for Bart as he is forced to become a TeachersPet and a target for bullies.

Added DiffLines:

* BlackComedy: The episode begins with a group of actors trying to kill a bunch of school kids for... trying to watch a re-enactment for free (with them actually appearing to ''kill'' poor Uter). Not to mention the re-enactment being soldiers murdering other soldiers trying to surrender being portrayed as brave and heroic.
* BlatantLies: Principle Skinner and Edna fight over the mic. On finally getting it, all Skinner can declare is "all is well in the school, my authority as principal is total" before Edna seizes it back from him.


Added DiffLines:

* CrazyPrepared:
** Lisa has an Emergency Strike Kit ready to go, complete with audio recording of a teacher scolding students.
** Milhouse's parents, in the brief time it takes the strike to be announced and Milhouse to rush home, manage to hire a tutor.


Added DiffLines:

* DissonantSerenity: At the end, violent criminals have been placed in the school, with one making a grab at the students. Mrs. Krabappel cheerfully tells them to just ignore the convicted murderer.


Added DiffLines:

* ViolenceDiscretionShot: The last we see of Uter, he's fallen behind and a group of soldier have surrounded him with clubs raised. Then it cuts away.

* CombatPragmatist / DirtyCoward: The battle being reenacted at Fort Springfield is one from the American Civil War. In 1864, the Ninth Bearded Infantry were just standing around when the troops they were fighting crested the hill they were standing at the bottom of. The enemy troops were surrendering unconditionally, many of them waving white flags. All of them were injured, some sporting bandages, others leaning on crutches; one soldier was on a stretcher. A soldier spoke for the group, saying that they were sick and "need leeches, and hacksaws to cut off [their] gangrenous limbs". How did the Ninth Bearded Infantry take to this surrender? By ''charging up the hill, and brutally finishing their enemies off!'' And what's worse, they're ''celebrated'' for this! And the children who were watching the reenactment cheered!

-->'''Skinner:''' (''bitterly'') He thinks he's so hot ever since he swept the Princi Awards. Those things are rigged...



* CuttingCorners: Ms. Krabappel resents Skinner's refusal to fix things all supposedly because their budget can't allow it.
