I sincerely apologize for my poorly worded comment. I did not mean to
insinuate anything about the quality of your teaching. Only, the phrase
"weeding-out process" made me jump: while I do understand (and observe)
that not all students are equally brilliant (and profs and others too,
for that matter...), I think the ones in difficulty need MORE HELP, not
to be abandoned in their failure (which is, as I understand it, what the
"weeding-out process" means).
Again, apologies for my lack of precision which opened the way to the
interpretation you gave to my previous post.
