Dear choudoufu,

You do what you think is the right thing to do. What happens after that is out of your hands, beyond your control.

But you still know you did what was right.

Regards,
John

All I can say is that my physics (and maths, and French) teachers were among the worst I've ever had (that is, I don't recall them ever bothering to explain anything, or at least, to explain anything clearly and well). It's a wonder I scraped a C grade in either physics or maths at O level.

Lynden Dorval has just been fired from his job:

Edmonton teacher fired for giving zeros

When a teacher gets fired for giving a 0 to a student who failed to hand in an assignment it tells you where Canadian education is headed.

Yeah that sounds just like Turkish education system, in private schools, if your daddy is rich and has connections, you got it made. Someday these useless pieces of meat may become doctors or lawyers, or god knows what on the strength of their worthless diplomas!

Dear Barbaros,

Being a ZERO is NOTHING to be ashamed of. Very Happy

Regards,
John
