The text on this print reads:

Everyday the teacher taught our class to spell five words. The teacher couldn't understand why only my brother and I were getting them. He'd say to the rest of the class, "How can you let these Chinese boys do better than you?" When the teacher wrote the words on the board I would copy them onto the back of my book. The next day when the teacher dictated them, I would sneak a look at my book in my desk and copy the words down. My brother would copy my page. But one day the teacher dictated the words in a different order and that's how he found out I'd been cheating.
