Do It Right In The First Place
James came to me and asked why he still had a credit recovery assignment. He said he did the last one and was sure he passed. I checked and found it was incomplete. When I told him, he said, "Ms, I stopped when I answered enough questions to pass." I told him that wasn't good enough, he had to complete the assignment and since he didn't, he will have to start again. He didn't think that was fair since he only had about 6 or 7 left on the original. "Too bad", I said, "you should have done it right in the first place." He left angry. I don't know whether he will do it or not and frankly, I don't care. These kids expect the world handed to them on a silver platter and I'm not serving.
