>> The school has an estimated 1,300 students, nearly 1,000 of which rely on federal student aid.
And therein lies the problem... these for-profit schools (Phoenix, DeVry, Kaplan, etc.) get a massive amount of their funding from taxpayers.
I teach many different ages. Some students have excellent parents that instill good manners, which leads to respectful behavior in the classroom, but many of my students are "volatile, sensitive, arrogant, disrespectful and combative" as the author pointed out. The big ego trip that America is going through stems from the rubbish media (movies, books, tv shows, etc.) that has polluted the minds of the younger generations. Nowadays, it's "hot, sexy, and alluring" to dress like a prostitute. Women are prostitutes and men are programmed to be attracted to that. No value is placed on intelligence and the journey to obtain knowledge. Class, elegance, and quality has taken a long, if not permanent, vacation. The bottom line is I think this enormous disrespect in schools is going to get worse. Hence, I am moving out of the country. America had its run. I'm moving to Europe were elegance and respect for educators is still a normality.
Thanks for this. Alcohol is a huge factor in awareness of your surroundings and is not mentioned here.
