I’m surrounded by luminous, sparkling idiots.
I tried to share in the Chairs meeting how much I hated Zoom teaching. In response, one colleague gushed that some of her students work filling pizza boxes and serving drinks at a drive-through while listening to her lectures on Zoom and that’s so great because flexibility!
Then everybody blabbed for an hour about how much students looove online learning.
Finally, the Dean spoke and told us that crowds of students have dropped out, many are dropping out even now after Thanksgiving, and the enrollments for spring are horrid.
These people are completely hopeless. Evidence is staring them in the face that students hate this. But they love not having to go to work while getting paid so they will keep chirping that it’s all fantastic until their chirp themselves out of jobs.
