Seven classes.
Average enrollment as of this week, the third of the term: 28.
196 total students.
Quite a load.

Classes will shrink.
Some students have failed already.
Missed three classes out of a total fourteen, meaning 21.43% of course time missed.
Policy is to fail them at 20% absence.
Allowances made in some cases.
Still, not all cases merit allowance.
Try again.

Others will fail.
I am demanding.
I require attendance.
I require work.
I require to see it.
I require much.
If there is no challenge, there is no reason to improve.
You are not good enough.
Neither am I.
Hence the challenge I offer you.
Get better.
Here is how.

It is a lesson I am still learning.
