Clip to ScrapBook #5

We have been remote the entire semester. Some kids never show up and turn in absolutely nothing, but now teachers have to make phone calls and try to help them get a passing grade. The phone call requirement started just in time for the last two weeks of the semester. How is that even possible? If it's possible to learn everything in two weeks, why did I spend an entire semester teaching?

P told me earlier in the semester that I was giving too much work (I did about a third of a normal year) and that he was telling parents to concentrate on the core classes and not worry about electives. I don't know who he told, so I"m not making phone calls. I assigned less work. Kids still don't turn in any work - they will still earn an F. If P told them not to worry about my class, he should have withdrawn them.

it's insane. I know life is hard right now. It's not a reason to reward them for quitting.
