I really think this aphorism is right. I just think that if a counselor arrives 15 minutes late, students in class should be able to legally leave without any kind of punishment. So, after establishing step-by-step guidelines and debunking the legitimacy of the 15-minute rule, it remains only to reveal the reasons for the creation of such a credible myth among the student body. Jules Dubel `20 looked at the justification for the rule: “We need something that gives us hope. If you`re in a situation and it`s outside the norm, you`ll need a protocol for that, and students will choose the one they benefit from. “I think it`s absolutely fantastic that the new group of kids mingling have discovered the truth about this law, and it`s time we started implementing it,” said Joe Dennis, past president of Mass Communications. To make up for lost time, I can say with 83% certainty that I will be 15 minutes late for classes at least once a week for the rest of the semester. It`s also not that teachers want to go to their 8-hour classes. “It`s crazy to see change over the years.
It starts by referring to the topic, then moves on to a very flawed comparison between a job you get paid on time for and a course you pay for, and then scrolls down to the person right above me who has reached the full meme mode. This crap weird as hell. Unfortunately, if your school doesn`t have guidelines for such cases, you can`t argue for leaving a class if a teacher is 15 minutes late. However, if this happens, the best solution is to find a principal and report the missing teacher. This way, a substitute teacher can be found who will officially fire you or find a way to use the time productively. There should of course be rules when children are allowed to leave the classroom, such as not disturbing other classes. I also think that children should be allowed to participate in another class so that they can not only learn responsibility and independence, but also give them time to think about their goals and what they really want to learn. If they go to a class above them, they might be better prepared for the next school year and have a better chance than someone who simply wasted their time doing nothing because the teacher didn`t show up and wasn`t allowed to leave the classroom. Students should NOT be allowed to leave school if the teacher is 15 minutes late. Why miss school just because of a class? It`s a nice BS.
It is extremely irresponsible to leave school because of a teacher. Students should feel like they`re staying put. The teacher could have had an emergency on short notice. What would the day look like if his class suddenly missed? It should be a rule that if students are penalized for being late, teachers/professors should do the same. If a student is one minute late, they are automatically detained, and we don`t have a word in it. When we try to “discuss” or “fight” for our rights, we get in more trouble because we seem disrespectful and respond. Some teachers arrive very late and it wastes our study time, if they cause us trouble because we waste learning, they should too! I think if your teacher is late for class, it is irresponsible to leave the students, but the teacher should be on time, so it is equally irresponsible for them to be late, so I am fifty fifty from what I think. This is because a teacher has rights. They are the temporary tutors of the students while they are in class. The legal term for this is “de facto guardian”. In a teacher`s classroom, the law states that a teacher has almost equal rights to those of a parent.
However, what makes it an urban legend in my opinion is the students` assumption that this rule applies to ALL schools, including high schools such as middle and high school. Here`s the truth and the reason behind it. Ok, it is not irresponsible for students to leave when the teacher is the one who is irresponsiblely late. Someone has associated it with a job and you shouldn`t be late if the boss is late, but that`s another matter entirely. When you`re in college, you pay for these courses and you expect to get what you paid for, in other words, the teachers are actually there on time!! The difference between a boss who is late and a teacher who is late is whether the boss is late or not, you should stay because you get paid! You shouldn`t have to stay in a classroom because you don`t pay it to be able to sit in a classroom and do nothing. I usually do 30 minutes, but when it`s over, when we haven`t heard anything at all, I think it`s fair to leave (to university anyway). Professors have many ways to contact students, if it`s been that long and we haven`t heard anything, then I guess you have big problems and don`t show up. Gail Choate, an associate professor in the Department of Political Science, said of the delay: “I`ve never been late. [Being on time] is one of the things I think is really important. If I see students making an effort [to be in class], then I have to be there too.
That may be a rule in some colleges, but others are not. In my opinion, however, I think it is quite acceptable for students to leave if the professor is more than 15 minutes late. Comparing work and university is not a good example because they are very different situations. That`s because you pay them for education, they don`t pay you to learn. If you were to compare the two, that would be one of the reasons why it should be a rule. If you owned a restaurant when an employee was late or absent, they wouldn`t receive a full day`s pay. If a professor is late or absent, they should apologize to students the next time they see them. If students are not in class, if the professor is more than 15 minutes late, they should email absent students the tasks they missed to get the most out of their money. It would be unfair to them to mark students as absent, as it would be like marking your boss absent, and they paid their money to get an education there and probably do better than waiting for a late or absent teacher.
The difference is that I don`t get paid to study, at least not yet, I`m paid at my job, not at school, so most students have this mentality that usually a professor walks through the door and is late for a meeting or other class that has lasted a long time. This rule developed by the students made more sense during the 45-minute lesson two years ago, as 15 minutes was a third of the allotted class time. Well, 15 minutes is an obscure fraction of today`s 70 minutes of class. Stanley further denied the existence of this rule, stating, “There has never been a rule like [the 15-minute rule] in the student handbook. Or never in my 17 years at Choate has there been such a rule in the student handbook. And I seriously, seriously doubt that there is such a thing in the manual. As higher education is optional, attendance rules are much softer than those in primary and secondary schools. Tertiary schools also have a mix of full-time and part-time students, and while primary and secondary students have to spend their days in school, higher education students may have to work outside of their studies. So they may be annoyed and wait for a teacher who may never come. To avoid wasting time, these institutions allow their students to leave after a certain period of time.
