Attendance is abysmal. They are only allowed four absences and many have two or more already. Telling time is a skill they also lack as they think nothing of walking in at 7 for a class that started at 6:10.
Only about 6 bothered to buy the text book.
They don't go to the lab to do homework from the school books.
They don't hand in test corrections.
And, they think they will pull through and pass.
These kids are so used to being passed through and being able to make up everything (or at least get credit for nothing) at the last minute they can't conceive of anything be different in college from high school.
Here we don't call parents and we don't give fourth and fifth and hundredth chances. Our jobs don't depend on their passing. In fact, we can lose our jobs if we pass them when they know nothing.
I've been trying to convince them of the errors of their ways. Hopefully they will learn before it is too late..
