"The Teacher from Mars" ~ 1940's short story by Eando Binder

Thanks to another generous fan of old paperback books at the Internet Archive, you can read or download “The Teacher from Mars,” a 1941 short story penned by the brothers Earl and Otto Binder under the pseudonym Eando Binder, as it was reprinted in the anthology My Best Science Fiction Story (1954).

According to the Binders, “The Teacher from Mars seems to me such a real character. At least, while writing the story, I was a Martian, and I was beginning to hate the whole human race for mistreating ‘my people!’ That’s how much I was thrown into the story. I suppose in the last analysis this tale can be classified as a ‘tear jerker.’”
