A mother brought her child to class today and the professor kicked her out...WDYT?
My class has a 5 strikes, you fail attendance policy. You can have an A in the class otherwise, but if you miss it 5 times, you automatically fail.
Today, this woman in the class brought her son with her. He looked about 2, and was fidgeting, loudly whispering, getting up and walking around, etc. She would try to correct him, but that would just create more noise. Eventually after about 20 minutes (of the 1 hour 30 minute class) the professor asked her to leave. She said she needed to stay because of the attendance grade and it would be her fifth absence. He said he didn't care, she was creating a distraction and that he'd see her next semester.
What do you think? Should he have let her stay? Was he too mean about it? Even though she shouldn't have brought him, my heart hurt for her, she was crying as she packed up and left.
