Group projects are toxic

Luke Hutchinson | Editor-in-Chief My time as a student has taught me a lot.  I’m not just talking about random facts about the American Revolution or how to use the Pythagorean Theorem, I’m talking about how to filter out things that don’t matter: homework that isn’t graded, tardies, mean Instagram comments, etc. You see, the educational system tends to exaggerate […]
