Out of the goodness of my heart, I told him if he manages to get a C+ on the final, I will pass him. He doesn't think this is possible (neither do I, but I didn't tell him) and sent an e-mail asking what else he can do to pass. I am ignoring this request. Hopefully he will get the message.
He probably graduated high school because teachers granted him extra favors. What a generation we have created! By the time anyone wakes up and sees what has been done, it will be to late to save the thousands, just like Mitchell.
