Throughout the Back to the Future series, we see that Strickland, sorry, Mr Strickland calls Marty a 'slacker' and George a slacker, even the guys shooting at his house are slackers. Do we know of anyone who Mr Strickland doesn't think as being a slacker? Non-canon answers will be accepted. I would be especially interested to see whether this is mentioned at all in the television series.

    It appears to either be genetic or heavily pressed upon offspring (e.g., Marshal Strickland in Part III). So Principal Strickland's father, and if he had a son, would be a safe bets. – Michael Itzoe Jul 16 '15 at 14:45

The only person I can recall whom Strickland mentions, but doesn't call a slacker, is Doc Brown. Strickland labels Doc a "dangerous... nutcase", but not a slacker.

Let me give you a nickel's worth of free advice, young man. This so-called Dr. Brown is dangerous. He's a real nutcase.

But the Back to the Future wiki seems to suggest that the actual number of people deemed by Strickland to be "slackers" is relatively small:

    I would add that his father and/or son if he has one he does not consider a slacker. Also himself. – sanpaco Jul 16 '15 at 18:50
