The 5-Minute Rule

January 23, 2005 at 10:44 PM | KSU, Random | No Comments

In all my years of schooling, I have not been able to enforce the notorious “5-minute rule”, not once. It used to be the “5-minute rule” back in high school, but no teachers were ever more than 5 minutes late to class. And even if they were, did anybody actually get up and leave because the teacher hadn’t showed up in the first couple of minutes of class? Probably not. It was illegal n shit. It’s now the “10-minute rule” and believe me, college professors have been more than 10 minutes late before. Even in the relatively lax attendance policy environment of college, not many are so bold as to leave after waiting 10 minutes. My guess for why this happens, is because when you’re paying good money for a college education, leaving class due to a tardy professor is probably only disadvantageous to the student.
