If the professor spoke in that condescending, nasty tone to me or the son or daughter I was paying tuition for, damn skippy he and the Dean would here from me.

 

You need to seek a refund on your degree. :whistling:

Yup, it's possible to be correct and still be rude; the two aren't mutually exclusive.

 

And yup, this guy was rude.

 

Exactly what these ultra-spoiled, coddled, "triggered" college kids need to get a dose of occasionally, so that when they encounter it in the real world (as they certainly will, repeatedly) they won't be incapacitated by tears of horror.

 

:rolleyes:

Petty attacks because I missed a word?

A thousand years ago when I was in college, there was a sign in our cafeteria that said, "AVOID REALITY, STAY IN SCHOOL" Assistant Professor Clifford Adams, in keeping with his job description, was trying to bring a little reality to his students. If it seemed a little harsh, it was primarily because, as a group, they're so coddled and spoiled.

 

It was OVERLY harsh. There are 100x ways to present 'reality' to students; this was like -10x.

 

Feel free to sit in on one of my lectures. Next up is Georgia State U, Dunwoody Campus, in which I plan to present why Modbus TCP is still the "Go-to" choice.

Sorry, after 16 years of Catholic schools, that was a walk in the park. I didn't always like it when I was going through it, but I'll tell you it builds character and fortitude and prepares you for the vicissitudes you'll encounter in "real" life.

Exactly. I never went to Catholic school, but I do remember that the best teacher I ever had, the one I learned the most from, was also the "harshest"; the one most kids considered the "meanest" teacher in the school.

 

He was a very good teacher. And yup, he was harsh.

Attacks? In no way did I attack you.

 

Were you triggered because some one pointed out a grammatical error? :biglaugh:

Ok, just plain petty. Do you go around correcting/criticizing the grammar and spelling mistakes of everyone on the internet, or just liberals?

I know what you mean. In my sophomore year in high school, my homeroom and Latin teacher was a nun, Sister Charlotte, who was an absolute wild woman. A very dramatic personality, she yelled and threatened us with violence fairly regularly although she never laid a hand on any of us. I was terrified of her for the first few months. Then it gradually sunk in that she really, passionately cared about her students.

 

I had had a different teacher for first year Latin and I had barely passed the course. After a year with Sister Charlotte, I took the New York State Latin Regents and got a 94. I've loved her ever since.

A lot of the time kids end up at least respecting the tough teachers the most. They're the ones remembered fondly even.

 

Having said that, I agree with Adam that on this particular topic the professor's delivery was rather poor. And I say this as someone who thinks the characteristic "Muslim" is frequently enough associated with violence and thus a fair item for profiling.

 

Still, he shouldn't have been fired but given a talking to, with about the same message he delivered. "You're lucky you're a teacher in the US and not in Yemen but don't you son of a birch abuse that privilege...one more personal attack like this and you lose your job."

 

Instead the administration proved itself also very thin skinned, intolerant and overly authoritarian. This was a question of a teacher being pissed off, not violent.

Careful, Snowflake, you'll melt.

 

OK, I'll confess. I only correct Liberals. I'd never correct a Conservative, especially a white/male Conservative.

 

There, feel validated?

Of course, you 're entitled to your opinion but I stand by what I said. I can find no fault in what the professor said or did. He told the unvarnished truth to a group of people who didn't want to or weren't prepared to hear it. That's what he was paid to do; he shouldn't have had to sugarcoat it to spare their delicate feelings. He was putatively dealing with adults here. This isn't nursery school.

He was an a$$hole. Everything he said was true, but the delivery method was ill advised. Still, from an entertainment standpoint, it was fun to see the muz get taken to the woodshed.
