For the past few years I have not accepted late work. My prinicpal has not mandated that we must accept it or must not, though. I keep asking my self though, in the real world isn't late work accepted, but with peanlties? For example, if you do not pay your credit card at time the companies do allow you to turn in late, but with a penalty. However, I know from being a lawyer that not completing work on time may result in your being fired, however you could always ask for a continuaince from the judge, but then again you are penalized as the judge will be annoyed. What are your thoughts on late work? Do you accepted/not. What is the penalty?
