> But would I tell him why? Did you? Would you, Mieke?
Yes, but I do not hesitate to ask students to come and see me or
stay after class in order to tell them that their behaviour or
attitude is unacceptable. So far I have not gotten into trouble over
this, but may perhaps in the future in this era of student rights.
One student did threaten me (and eventually the university) with his
father's lawyers, but that was over a case of plagiarism. I did not
budge (all I wanted was for him to admit & apologize), but then the
evidence was too overwhelming. The deans and vp were in a bit
of a tizzy for a while.
Call me old-fashioned & traditional. Mieke
