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.
