    The meaning is the same as of "I wish the ground would swallow me up" = you are so embarrassed by something that you wish you would just disappear

    Not a teacher.

    To add to freezeframe's post, the idea of "transferring" is used in this comic (which obviously takes place in a school hallway) because students sometimes transfer to different schools for various reasons. In this case, Charlie Brown is so embarrassed, transferring to a different school is not far enough away.
