The Day the Grades Posted

The Tuesday after Finals Week is the day that grades get posted. It's also the day I get a couple of e-mails from upset students who will not be passing on to the next level.

I get things like this:

"Please help me pass. I will study harder next quarter," says the student who failed nearly every test I gave. No, and you should have studied harder last quarter.

"I got an E. That is not possible for me," says the student who didn't turn in a single piece of homework, failed at least half the tests, and only showed up about 2/3 of the time. Yes, yes it is possible.

Crushing students' dreams one e-mail at a time. Sigh.
