  •  Anecdontal evidence not being (5+ / 0-)

    scientific evidence... and this example being one of the more extreme circumstances.

    In my experience, the students who I'd call the freeloaders would do badly on their tests or other assignments... and then demand the teacher be unreasonably lenient with the grade given. Oh... no prior notice of prolonged absence(s).

    And then the parents of such students would back them up because they are the ones that take their children for vacation during the off season because it's cheaper.

    So with the particular situation I described, the reason why the student does so poorly is not the teacher's fault and I would not penalize the teacher for it at all.

    Why hello there reality, how are you doing?
