“And what will they do when they don’t have their parents to do their homework??”

I know, I know....They whine and complain that they are being treated unfairly. We just had some students in the clinical lab program that were extremely upset when they were given just average grades on their evaluations. They had been so use to being told how superior they were in school that they couldn’t handle it when they became just average in THE REAL WORLD of the workplace. In an actual lab they were on the bottom rung of the ladder..a place they were not accustom to being. Very unhappy.

I really love my students but I think they are in for such a shock in the real world. I wonder if their parents are going to call their bosses and complain, or ask what they can do to increase their paycheck (or whatever). They just won’t let them sink or swim, which is a terrible disservice to the kids, who could probably do it on their own if just allowed to fail a couple of times.
