Irwin Horowitz, a professor at Galveston University, Texas, tried to fail his entire class.
In his letter to the university authorities he wrote the reasons of such a strange behavior. He said that during this course:
- He was told to “chill out”, “get out of my private space”, “go back and teach”.
- He was assaulted by being called a “moron” in the face.
- He was the subject of all-university untrue gossips and accusations.
- He saw countless cases of cheating and even caught students at the very process.
- He heard apparent lies said directly to his face.
- Students involved him into their fights.
He also informed his class that he ‘had enough’, he is ‘quitting the course’ and that everyone of them will receive the F-mark for the course.
None of you deserve to graduate from this university because you do not possess those personal qualities that graduates should have, you are the worst class I’ve ever had
– said Horowitz.
University authorities said that none of the students in Horowitz’s class have failed on the course and that leaves them with the fact that the only reason, why students will fail is their impropriety to the particular class.
The manager of Horowitz’s department will replace Irwin to the end of the semester, and though they will be investigating the statements in Horowitz’s letter, they won’t support his decision to give an F to all 30 students of the class.
