In this article the author explains how based off his years of observations colleges have shifted the focus of education to more of the social needs of the students. Why does Edmundson have so much concern for the way the students view him? The author has created this ideal image of himself that after numerous surveys it seems he’s reflecting and concluding that he is viewed differently than he’d liked. In the past it appears that in the past he was not as anxious to know how the students graded him. Being that he is in humanities it seems only natural for Edmundson to at some point over analyze his student’s perspective of him as a professor. Edmunds’ stance on this issue is valid because the college experience for a teacher has changed over the years, versus now a day students’ opinions and their comfortability on campus has over shadowed education.

Shorris’s article forces the reader to look from his perspective regarding students’ college experience as opposed to poverty. Many of his interactions that he speaks of show support for why he believes that schools have been giving students more freedom which might be of benefit to the those that are less fortunate. I understand the authors stance on this issue, being that education is broad and attending college on campus is in some ways assisting students with preparation for the real world.
