sounnds like your kids could use some tough love but its really not your place to administer it. Do many of these students have advisors?
Yes and no -- it's just technical school, and the parent organization tries to foster a "Yes you can!" attitude, and prizes attendance (and tuition) over standards and achievement. So they don't turn anybody away from enrolling in our program. The retention rate is pretty low during the first couple of terms as a result.
But the senior students are excellent, for the most part, as I mentioned before. My real beef is with admissions, I suppose.
So, yeah, as you were.
