Would I Be A Bad Professor If . . .

Would I be a bad professor if the following exchange took place via text message:

Student: “What’s the lowest I can make on my final exam and pass your class?”

Me: “I don’t help students do the least they can. You can look on the student portal to see your average and figure it out yourself. Better yet, prepare for the exam and do well!”

To all my students (present and future): Aim for something higher than the least you can do. Don’t just get by. Forever repudiate the mantra, “D’s get degrees.”

Speak Your Mind
