Since we only have 4 rows at our current location for tamusa - which rows should jsut stay home?

the ones with a dog and a pool on a day like today! It's HOT

Usually the ones that shouldn't be there are the ones with the free ride or mommy and daddy are paying for it. Somehow you appreciate education a little more when it comes out of your own pocket.

LeAnna M Nesbitt

Trying to recruit more students is not necessarily a bad thing. Actully we have evolved from a rural undeveloped country. Now, to one with excellent grade schools, secondary, community colleges, and degree institutes locally in every state of the United States. Everyone regardless of the income level of the students families either wealthy, poor, or middle class still have a requirement to attend public school systems in their neighborhoods. Its then up to the teachers and students themselves to take advantage of that opportunity. So we may talk about differences in our education programs but the alternative of not offering that opportunity is much worse. Many of out Presidents, Congressmen, US senators, state legislatures, local and public servents in our county and city agencies have often achieved enormous success as students, business men and women, and as elected reps. In many cases they were as poor as anyone could be at the beginning of their education program. Only as a result of going to school did they achieve their dreams and goals. The fact that we offer this can be frustrating to the instructors but instructors are educators within a free society and every person they try to elevate towards the process with support and accommodations is part of the contract with American people as an educator.
On the other hand, back to the question...
I just graduated from Pac in May and as a student in my first semester I'm taking 12 hours this summer. I need to take everything serious and even time is crucial. So when I see a student having their own conversations and talking over the professor in my other classes, its ridicules and immature! So a few students need to go to beauty school and get out so the rest of us can prosper.

Every student needs to find the prusuit that rings their bell, period. In addition 'college' has morphed into all sorts of unnecessary degrees to achieve this goal of everyone getting a degree. A BA in most social sciences is near useless without a grad degree and a certification. Political sicence is a feeder for the Dem party, ever meet a government teacher that thought we had too much government, I never have. And of course manufacturing political scientists gest us, well more government, not more private sector innovation.

I agree with the ideas but how is it that I just returned nine papers to be re written in the 15 th grade, clearly the education establishment has terribly failed these students, every comunity college in America has remediation classes and over 70% of their students are in some sort of remediation class. Isn't that an indictment of what used to be HIGH school.

The ones that talk over the prof bother me too...
