Every semester I’ve got “that” class — the knuckle-head brigade. This semester Tuesdays are when I have to
teach confront a group of 30 (mostly male) students who just don’t give a damn.
And at the end of the semester when they’re angrily and/or tearfully calling me up asking why they failed I’ll be happy to tell them — if you can’t be bothered to pay attention, I can’t be bothered to care about your academic future at this college.
It’s kind of depressing. At least my other sections are going well.
