Thread regarding Corinthian Colleges Inc. layoffs

What I don't miss....

is what I call the weekly "diaper drop" in my classes online. To explain: a few years ago, I lived in a condo with neighbors next door who had small kids. Every few days I would hear a kid screaming "diaper drop" and the mom yelling "no, no" and then scolding the kid. I had a chance to ask the mom what it was, and she admitted with embarassment that her son would take off the loaded diaper and drop it from the upstairs landing onto the tile floor, scattering diaper pellets and the contents. It would leave a huge mess for her to clean up. This is just that same kind of stuff we faced at this sham "college." I would kill myself all weekend grading the crap that customers turned in, only to get the monday morning "diaper drop" of late work that was little more than the contents of that loaded diaper. My supervisor would criticize me saying I needed to give more "constructive feedback" for students. OK, I would usually start with: don't have five or six spelling errors (including spelling of your own name) in the first paragraph., and don't use size 48 font. Goodbye Corinthian. My a giant diaper drop on management. You have earned it!

Remember what students had to do when they locked themselves out of their Everest student email? They had to answer questions in order to reset their password. I had one particularly special student that I was convinced smoked meth before class that could not get their password reset after multiple attempts. Finally contacted shitty IT and got her answers. She was misspelling her hometown!!!?! Granted Phoenix is spelled funny but if you were born there, and lived there don't you think it would be easy?

I miss the chance to share stories on this board. Good laughs here. The trouble with the whole system is that the students are customers. They go and the company goes under. Go try to buy a car with bad credit or other b.s. They keep you on the lot because the sale and the money matter. We have done that with education. If we let the students go who shouldn't be in classes, there would be no college and no jobs. Not sure what the fix is.

How about the students that are sick, have a relative/friend die (2 or 3 times a quarter) or their computer crashed. Probably 60% of every class are those. I stopped listening to the excuses and ignore them. Get the work in or take a hike. Real schools expect the work done and don't give a rat's ass why you couldn't get it done.

The phone comment is funny also. I would have students trying to take an online Everest class from an old iphone and we called it "college"
