The prof I am writing this stem cell paper for is less than sympathetic to parenting students. Last week I called him to tell him my baby was sick and I would not be there. He said students could miss not more than 2 classes no matter the reason. (I had already missed 1 several weeks earlier due to my gallbladder problems and my sick kid.) He said if I missed that night and ended up needing to miss another class (even if my son was in the hospital) I should drop the class WTF!!!???
He said "I am sympthatic to your sick child but that does not give you an excuse to miss class."
Is this discrimination or is he just a jerk?
