She's not going to be the cause of sinking their ship any faster.
Regardless, it's a pointless argument. My perspective on the issue is Maks' general educational approach and its marked difference from the past. Could you imagine if he did that to Erin? Or Denise? Why do it now? Yes, teachers adjust instructional styles to their kids, but I just don't condone his behavior. If the rest of the thread is on deck that it's not a big deal since Brandy allows it, then that's the consensus, and I'm willing to leave it at we disagree.
