Somwthing tells me a lot of them might decide to "ship out". Good luck Eva!
The Head of School said he would not allow anyone to "ship out."
The newspaper was THEIR idea, and it's too far into the school year to change. If they complain, he said he would tell them, "It's your own fault for blowing off your assignments. I would have given all of you an 'A' if you'd done what you were supposed to do. But you've forced us to get tough. Now you have to get busy, or you'll have an 'F' on your midterm report card."
Really, we're not leaving them much choice.
But it's not unfair. They couldn't have gotten away with this in any other elective.
So far, they're still in this Judy Garland/Mickey Rooney phase. ("I know! Let's put on a show!") It's past time they snap out of it and get down to work. We can still have a lot of fun, but they need to face facts. Putting out a newspaper does involve a lot of work.
