Example 6: diagramming necessary and conditional statements

The MOD is used to represent "make their own decisions." In the example MOD is used in two premises. One premise is referring to students and one is referring to teachers although the same variable is used and they are treated as the same thing. How is this possible when one is reffering to teachers and one to students?

@MACZ Happy to help! The variable "MOD" ("make their own decisions") is used to refer to students, whereas the variable "PMD" ("power to make decisions in their classrooms") is used to refer to teachers. Two different variables are used for the two different groups, so they are not treated interchangeably.

Does this make sense? Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
