Mortgage Crisis

Two of my 72 students didn’t turn in final exams today because they’re both struggling to keep their homes from being foreclosed. This is the first time this has ever happened to me. I know that grandmothers are far more likely to die during exam week, but these students’ stories are both specific enough & varied enough that it doesn’t feel like another fictional dead grandmother to me. I think that these students really are losing their homes. It’s a frightening economy that we’re in.
