Lecturer brings crib to class
Meanwhile, Briefly News reported that a professor at MIT, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has been celebrated on social media for his thoughtful act that helped a student in his class get time to concentrate on her studies.
Troy Littleton bought a crib and placed it in his office to help one of her students, a mother to a nine-month-old child. Posting the image of the crib on Twitter back in early May, the teacher labelled it his "favourite new equipment", saying it was meant for his student, Karen, to bring her infant child.
He quipped that he would also get to play with the little one as her mother works on her thesis.
