If the teachers of Drew Freeman do not allow thestudents to turn in their homework late then thestudents will learn to finish their work on time, correct?This may be, but this Sink or Swim philosophy oftenleaves many students failing and does more harm thangood. If a student does not see himself as being able tofinish the assignment on time, he may simply decide tonot do it. This would not only cause the student’sgrades to fall, but also his or her teacher would likelyspend unnecessary time trying to persuade the studentto do work.This would not be only one student though! Manystudents would fall into this downward spiral of notdoing their homework. This would result in manydeclining grades… This in turn would result in theschool’s reputation declining… So how do we solvethis?
