Episode Summary

EDIT
Educating Mama
AIRED:
Bubba's teacher lets him know he won't be graduating high school unless he goes to night school to make up a course in English that he did poorly in during the semester. So while Mama's making a big stink about Bubba not graduating, the news comes out that Mama never finished high school either. So she joins Bubba at night school to try and get her high school diploma.

But she is soon faced with the same problem she was some 40 years ago. It seems the reason she quit in the first place was the teacher wanted her to read "The Scarlett Letter" by Nathaniel Hawthorne. But when she couldn't get past the first page he humiliated her in front of the entire So she left and never went back. So what do you think the first book the is asked to read in this time around?

Iola comes over and Mama is once again struggling to get past the first page, but once she figures out it's all about sex and romance, she can't put it down. While Bubba tries to slide by (along with every other person in the class) with Raynotes (a version of crib notes). As it turns out Mama's the only one who actually took the time to read the book.moreless
