Social Class Links 02/25/2012

February 25, 2012

  • This post makes me think about the many times we’ve called in “at risk” students (almost always first-generation) to talk to them about professionalism and how their attitudes/behavior won’t serve them well “out there”.

    I recognize that the assertiveness of the students described in this post will serve them well in some ways, but don’t we have the parallel obligation to not only “manage” their demands but have the bigger conversations about how these sorts of shenanigans will play “out there” with colleagues, if not bosses?

    Do we talk to them about their class privilege? I mean talk about it right out loud?
