Dear 100 Hour Board,

If teachers can have substitutes, why can't students?


A: Dear Bueller,

They can. Haven't you ever had someone take notes for you?

Of course, let's think for a second. A teacher works in exchange for money, correct? So if the teacher gets a substitute, what does the teacher lose? Money. When the teacher leaves, they don't get the same benefits as when they're present in class.

A student studies for an knowledge, correct? So if the student gets a substitute... what does the student lose? Yeah, that's right. Knowledge. And that usually means bad grades.

It's all about the price you're willing to pay.
