    Short Stories about Teacher/Student

    Hello

    I am looking for short stories about Teacher/ Student. I found two good ones by Anton Chekhov i.e. "The Schoolmaster" and "A Classical Student" but thats it. I would appreciate if anyone can help me finding more short stories that centers around teacher/student/school.

    Thanks!

    I read "Good Bye Mr Chips" a few years back. I think it is more a novel than a short story. There is another excellent short story "The Last Lesson" by Daudet that is about teacher/student. Any other stories?

    I suppose, in the oddest sort of way, various of the dialogues of Plato are about Socrates as a teacher, and his students. Perhaps "The Symposium" (which originally meant, quite literally, drinking buddies, in ancient Greek), or perhaps "The Apology," about the death of Socrates.

    Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom is (a novel) about the author getting in touch with his old college professor. I've heard it's quite touching.

    Stephen King's "The Apt Pupil"

    ...sorta applicable (more of a student/mentor)...screwed up for sure.

    The chocalate wars, and Beyond the chocalet war (again forgot the author) and i beleive it was called Who killed mr Griffith (or soemthine of that sort) which is a very strange and interesting short novel about a bunch of kids who try to teach their teacher a lesson and end up killing him.
