A student in class made me think about snow days from a different view point this past week through one of their blog posts. I always looked at it as an extra day to prepare for classes, never realizing that by missing a class I am losing the opportunity to learn for what I already paid for.
Tuition is paid upfront, whether we have the classes or not. BEDUC 476 is an even bigger outlier in that we already have two missed classes for holidays this quarter, yet if someone takes this class next quarter they will pay exactly what we did but also gain two extra class periods. Our snow day took another class away from us and actually made us lose some of what out tuition a paid for.
