College credit for this?

closingoftheamericanmindFrom what I read, community colleges today are like they were in the early 80s when I took a writing class.Then the instructor suggested we buy two books, but few students did and no assignments were given from them.Some writing was assigned and almost anything could have used.It was gone over gently in class.If anyone had done a poor job, it was never brought up.

The classes were mostly discussion; there were few notes taken and no tests.I missed many classes and assignments and easily earned 3 units of credit.(I had worked harder in junior high school.)

A feel-good survey from the administration was taken; it was designed to elicitpablum.

Compared to when I was in college in the early 60s, this course was a joke.
