When is management going to give up on the coaching aspect?
How is this going and has anyone really seen increases or retention of students?
I was told last week that I cannot fail students, even if they do not complete work. My campus is a “teach-out” so they want everyone graduated regardless of quality. Guess I’ll keep teaching and just give As; why grade if they all have to pass.
Do we know anything?

Reviewed today the many layoffs over the last 6 months. Many, let me repeat, many of these were not related to bad HR yearly reviews, or DMs or WW. Many appear to be more related to the employee's age. Hey, we know of 2 leaders who reported to HR... read more
