“It’s the printer’s fault!”

In Uncategorized on December 8, 2015 at 3:41 pm

More and more, “my printer is out of ink” is replacing “the dog ate it” as an excuse for not having homework. I have told all my classes repeatedly that when the printer is out of ink, they can and should write their work out the old-fashioned way, by hand.

Using printers at school is very chancy. The library is often closed to students. If students rely on the school printers, they MUST do their work ahead of time and have a few days to get to the printers. Depending on school printers is not viable for last minute or late work.

Don’t use printers or the library as an excuse!
