An adjunct professor at Texas A & M University at Galveston became so angry with his students in a business strategic management class that he failed them all and quit the class.
Inside Higher Ed quotes from an email he wrote to the class:
Since teaching this course, I have caught and seen cheating, been told to ‘chill out,’ ‘get out of my space,’ ‘go back and teach,’ [been] called a ‘f—ing moron’ to my face, [had] one student cheat by signing in for another, one student not showing up but claiming they did, listened to many hurtful and untrue rumors about myself and others, been caught between fights between students….
But it wasn’t just bad behavior and cheating, it was also giant academic gaps. As Inside Higher Ed tells it:
Most, he said, couldn’t do a “break-even analysis” in which students were asked to consider a product and its production costs per unit, and determine the production levels needed to reach a profit.
The university will reconsider the failing grades.
