To all students of Mr. Jackson's Spring 2017 classes:
All students are required to complete the following survey. Please take your time and craft your responses with care and precision. The responses of attendees and non-attendees alike will be valued greatly. Each students' responsiveness to the survey will be recorded, but your individual responses to the survey questions will be anonymous. Even though I believe students should be trusted to give honest feedback under their own name, I have been labelled naive for doing so. (I cannot imagine punishing a student for honest, thoughtful criticism or rewarding a student for trumpeting praise; also, I don't give a darn about hearing the comments of anyone so weak and/or dishonorable they can express themselves honestly only under condition of anonymity.) However, given that the universe does not conform perfectly to my expectations and code of honor, I have structured the survey such that your responses will remain anonymous.
Thank you in advance for your thoughtful and considered responses.
