college stress

Reported by Lena Graham | July 10th, 2018 @ 12:25 PM

This is not about requiring less work. We agree that that would be wrong. It's about giving more support, while still requiring all the same work.

The point was that students who were failing were not made up of ONLY students who just didn't care, like the ones you describe.
Some of them are students with no support-system outside the school. They're the first in their family to college, with many from low income communities. When they have trouble navigating college, they have nobody to tell them how to cope, and self-doubt can take over. This professor recognized that, and gave them the support that they weren't able to get from outside.

According to paper typer onlineThose from families and communities where most go to college have plenty of people around them who can help them through the difficult adjustment to college life.

The point is that the old attitude of "make it super hard and offer no support" as a kind of survival of the fittest, is not what's best for our country or our students. It's just best for lazy professors who only want to teach students who are easy to teach, and want the rest to quit. The key difference is in offering more guidance and support for the students who don't have former college students back home to give them guidance. It's a little extra work for the schools, but it's well worth it, and it's the right thing to do.
