Quoting Becky☮Will:" Very true. I'm just wondering now how the teacher can tell if she's doing it or not."
The teacher may not be able to, but the cats out of the bag now. I'm annoyed it's even an issue. I had a horrible pregnancy and was on bedrest the majority of it. Strict bedrest. I was barely allowed to walk to the bathroom, forget a mile, lol. However, I'd have taken an online health class. I wouldn't have had a 2nd thought about that being an issue. Giving her a different assignment doesn't negate her work, or make her do less then others. Her education in the subject doesn't suffer.
It's like going to a math class and then finding out that to pass the class you HAVE to run a mile. Um, what? That really isn't needed for the scope of the class. . .It isn't needed for you to learn what you need to learn.
I agree that if it was in the syllabus she should have seen that and objected at first (if she knew it would be a problem), but a Dr's note should be sufficient because it isn't like the requirement is needed for the class (IMO).
And she could lie, but I'd have probably spoken to the teacher about it and not have lied either. I'm pretty honest, and I'd never have figured it would be a problem.
