“Do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest.”

~ Mark Twain (1835-1910)

Eduhonesty: If I want to keep my job, I can’t exactly follow Mark’s advice. I am likely to lose my job if I fail the number of students who deserve to be failed. So I won’t. I like my job. But some of these kids would be better off if I did not offer them so many chances to recover their grades. What I am teaching them will not help them when they actually go out and get a real job. Schools give fourth or fifth or twentieth chances. Bosses don’t.
