NYC Educator hosts the Carnival of Education, which is divided into sex, drugs, rock ‘n roll and other categories.
Ms. Cornelius refuses to give extra credit to a student who has missed assignments and failed quizzes.
L’enfant was out of class for the last half of first semester having her baby. She then missed part of second semester. Her homebound teacher claimed she completed tons of work to the tune of a 90%, which is about 50% higher than she ever attained when she was in actual attendance in my class, and this with a newborn home, to boot. She has been meeting with a guidance counselor for hours now to figure out how she’s going to “get her credits.” Counselor had called me, and I told her L’enfant was not passing, but with a good exam grade, she could pull it off.
She is not passing any class. She passed my class first semester due to the miraculous intervention of the homebound instructor. When she came back, her preferred position was trying to see how long her head could stay down before I made her sit up. Four unfinished assignments turned in during that time, and quiz scores in the mid-40s. I saw her after school with her baby, but she did not come to tutoring.
