What is the Biggest Barrier to Student Success in College
I have a friend of mine ask this question to me. His contention was that there would be a lot of answers but the answers would generally be characterized as outside influences. You see this a lot in life. So I asked a very narrow group of my students (seniors) this question. These were their answers:
|Myself or some part of it||30|
My buddy was both wrong and amazed. Nearly 70% of the students said the issue involved them. of those 30 responses above, the most common of the answers was time management, somethings students struggle to learn. I wonder how many people would see things this way as well? My buddy was really impressed with my students. Now he should come see their final presentations and prepare to be really impressed.

Of course the “IRS” and “indiscetions” answers might be the more interesting….
