Rude students rile Rob Jenkins, who teaches English at Georgia Perimeter College.

A female student walked out of his freshman composition class, returning a few moments later with a bag of chips, a candy bar, and a Diet Coke.

Maybe she needs to eat frequently because she has low blood sugar or some other condition. But I think she was probably just hungry and decided the middle of my class was as good a time as any to go get a snack.

He ignores the “disruptive few,” unless a student is distracting the class frequently.

Is it a professor’s job to teach manners?
