Today, I was warned that I was failing too many students and it had to stop, so I showed my boss all of the easy assignments a lot of students didn't even turn in. She told me to stop using so many "big words" in them. I teach at a four year University. FML

Is it the students failing or are you failing the students by not being able to teach the material.

This is the "no man left behind"education system at work. American education is about lowering the bar until everyone's a winner.

Hasn’t this been posted months ago?

You know what they say.... Stupid loves company...

U S A! U S A! U S A!

young people these days, especially in America, are just plain lazy. they don't want to do the work and expect you to give them a good grade for not doing anything. I am a young person but I was taught work hard and you'll reap good rewards

Interesting username, OP.

Is it the students failing or are you failing the students by not being able to teach the material.

If they aren't even turning in the assignments they aren't trying. Fail them all and let God sort them out.

Wow time to talk to the dean cause your boss is a idiot 😒

I feel ya. Got pretty much the same thing from my Chair. I had a Junior tell me 189-98 was 102. WTF.

I went back to school for new degree after 20 years. Of the new students that I saw, about half never should have been able to graduate high school. I had to take a couple of freshman courses, that weren't in my first degree. These students these days we're having problems, and it was simple stuff that I learned in high school. Colleges are letting too many kids in that have no business being there. These kids have no chance of graduating, but the school's make money off of them with the tuition, and the kids are settled with that they have to pay.
