Midterm Grades and Spring Break

It's spring break week at the college, so there are many fewer students around; which is a welcome break.

As a teacher, midterm grades are issued around now - I just completed calculating and submitting mine. It's kind of grim thus far, here's the breakdown:

A      2
A-     4
B+     2
B      3
B-     1
C+     0
C      1
C-     1
D+     1
D      3
F      9
Total 27

There were 36 at the start, 9 have abandoned the class in some form. Of the remaining 27, 1/3 are failing and the sad part, it's just laziness - not submitting work; hopefully they get their ass in gear and try to turn things around in the second half.
