Paul Musgrave Interviewed For A Story Questioning If Parents Should Contact Professors On Their Children’s Behalf

Paul Musgrave, Assistant Professor of Political Science says “The classroom is between a community of adults who are learning together, I want to work with the people who are in my class, and I want to hear from them if there’s problems.” If parents do intervene, “I never judge a student by what their parents do,” Musgrave says. “The secret is you’ve got to keep the relationship in terms of you as a faculty member and the students. That is actually the secret to everything.” ( US News & World Report, 11/2/22)
