You're an idiot. I've seen juniors to senior MDs wearing them just because for you it doesn't work doesn't mean others shouldn't do it. Get over yourself and focus on doing good work instead of people trying to take care of their back or be comfortable instead of look a certain way

If they score less than 50% on a quiz or test, we have to mark it up to a 50%. This is the new norm and is causing kids to not do work, or just the bare minimum. It has taken the joy out of teaching and has taken away the accountability of students. Anyone else facing this? What do you do?
