On less formal levels students many times withdraw from courses of study--with or without class attendance. As student motivation declines there is a tendency to withdraw from the course of study, informally if not formally. The student who only appears to be engaged in a course of study wastes his own time and the time of others who are hurt by his non- involvement. Yet institutional policies often have the effect of discouraging students' desire to be honest about their involvement. They must appear to be involved in a course of study because to be honest and make their withdrawal explicit is to invite bureaucratic violence in the form of albatross "F" grades which are included in the cumulative grade point average computation. The quality- control-measure includes courses which do not count toward the degree. This discourages students from taking chances, and most discourages the weaker students. Because there is not a fail-safe context in which to take courses, students learn to play games with academic policies rather then become educed through authentic meeting. People withdraw from meetings when they find it dangerous to participate in meetings. When others make self feel uncomfortable due to the real problems which self has, it is a natural consequence the self withdraws from authentic meetings with those who engendered the sense of discomfort. Academic courses of study are contexts for human meeting. An academic course of study that does not involve human communication is only an appearance. Attempts have been made to conduct courses of study exclusively through the written word, but it is difficult for such courses to be equivalent to courses in which there is the possibility of authentic meeting. Non-verbal communication plays an important role in education which has carry-over value. Thus educational contexts which block non-verbal communication are limiting. In a similar way educational contexts, which block non-verbal communication by motivating student withdrawal from authentic meeting are limiting. It is important to recognize withdrawal in its informal as well as its formal forms. (c) 1999 by Paul A.
