I really hate certain parts of the educational system - particularly deadlines. Like, I had one teacher a while back who a) gave you suggestions of when things should be handed in, but would accept them without penalty until the last day of class b) let you rewrite your essays as often as you wanted until you got the grade you felt you deserved, and c) was understanding if you weren’t able to attend class for a particular reason and did not penalize late work. Meanwhile my current teacher won’t accept any work the second after class has ended, will not let you make stuff up if you were sick, and will fail you for an essay if it isn’t printed and turned into him when class starts.
Like, seriously, bro. We’re in college. I know you’re making bank as a college professor. Take a few seconds to realize we’re confused teenagers with a lot going on in our lives and when you’re a hard-ass you’re seriously just adding more stress and depriving us of sleep, not to mention the fact that we don’t learn the source material as well. If you’re getting paid that much, the least you can do is help make sure we really learn what we’re supposed to, and studies show that we don’t learn as much when under stress.
