Rude behavior increases in college courses

Full story: TwinCities.com

Lee Shumow doesn't want to text her students or be their friend on Facebook, but to their chagrin prefers an old-fashioned way to communicate: e-mail. The educational psychology professor at Northern Illinois University appreciates when students take the time to reply.

We live in an age of entitlement mentalities, so it's not surprising that students are more disrespectful.

Memo to Rebecca Lessenberry and Allyce Doorey, the College of Lake County moron student smokers who were called out by their teacher and told not to infect the classroom with their tobacco stink:

No one is surprised that people who are stupid enough to smoke are also capable of being stupid enough to be shocked--SHOCKED--that your teacher doesn't want himself or his other students to share your noxious habit in the classroom. Your response to the teacher, getting wet and dialing up the stink meter, confirms my suspicion that smoking kills brain cells in addition to causing cancer and heart disease.

People who chose to exist in a poisonous tobacco smoke cloud should should try to be a little less clueless and selfish when they walk into a public building.

My sons friend are that crowd and they are respectful and law abiding. So your silver spooned comment is a bit off. Any moron can go to college these days.

Kids should show more respect. However, as they see that their slightly older peers are often mired in student loan debt and have very grim employment prospects, they probably have little incentive to revere higher education as a stepping stone to a better life. In turn, they have little incentive to respect the professors and administrators who thrive on their student loan debt / tuition payments.
