A couple of week ago I was chatting to one of my placement tutors who was having problems with the numbers of his students. It wasn't that his students were all leaving but that some from last year were on the wrong course for what they wanted to do for their careers and so he helped them as much as he could but also suggested they leave the course and study something that would be more beneficial for them. This caused problems for him in terms of money loss for the college.
However I am interested in this from an inclusivity point of view. At teachers of course we must do everything we can to accommodate all students and help them to learn but if they really are on the wrong course shouldn't we also do something about that, even it if means that student moves onto a different course?
