Not College Material

At 4:48 Ginger sent me an e-mail asking what was going to be on the evenings exam.  The class started at 6:10.  She arrived 10 minutes late.  As soon as she handed in the exam she left.  She missed the review session for next week's final.

Georgia walked in at 6:55 PM.  She was at the hairdresser and the woman took too long.  I told her she only had 20 minutes left.  She missed exam 2 and was late to exam 3.  That time it was car trouble.  She wanted to know what extra credit she could do to raise her grade and was upset when I told her there was none.

And everyone should go to college, right!!

I'm surprised that some students didn't asked you to nominate them for the for Term Extention Program. This way they can sit in a separate room for one week, complete a packet of material that represents an entire term of work and change the 40 they received the entire term to a 65.

Many students assume that colleges will give away a passing grade of 65 to them. They don't see reality; they've been enabled in high school too many times.
