A friend who teaches evening school in Brooklyn just sent me this academic policy. The teachers are being told to pass everyone.
Just show up, or not, it doesn't matter. Make up the assignments or don't even bother. Teachers need to hold on to their jobs so tests showing mastery of material will be dummied down.
No wonder that college professor had to read the riot act to his students. They got out of high school knowing nothing and barely showing up. Why should this be any different?
