"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


it happened

I just got my first email from a parent. Of a college student.

This one was fairly innocuous: my child is missing the first three days of class, what are the readings, that sort of thing. But my gosh. How ridiculous. I teach adults, not children.

You should have had plenty of warning - those helicopters are pretty noisy when the parents fly in.

Yep. I've already added a note about FERPA (the federal law that prohibits me from telling parents their kids' grades) to my syllabus.

Just read this to Mrs. E - she told me that she has already had this happen to her before (she teaches at one of the local community colleges). So sad.
