  •  The problem with the professionalizing (3+ / 0-)

    of the student class is that by extending the school year more and more and testing more and more, we are pretty much stifling creative thinking and a sense of adventure in students.  Many of the students I teach at the CC level won't do an assignment unless they can do it perfectly.  This is an attitude that begets academic failure.
