Doesn't Deserve Any Help


College classes end this week.  Classes are scheduled to meet Friday and Saturday to make up days lost to Sandy. The final exam is Monday and I haven't finished the curriculum.  I also want to review.  One of my classes meets from 3 to 5 which I know is a problem for one of my students who is an orthodox Jew.   

I came up with an alternative plan for this student.  I figured he could attend another teacher's class on a day that didn't interfere with his sabbath.  I asked him weeks ago for his schedule so I could find classes that worked.  He didn't respond.  I reminded him.  Again, I got nothing.  He missed classes last week.  He has not handed in a homework and he is repeating the class.  In fact, it is the only class he needs to graduate.

His test grades are passing but I have no problem not passing him.  And, he better not use religion as an excuse.  He had the opportunity to do something and blew it.
