    Texas A&M-Galveston professor, fed up with a dysfunctional class, flunks every damn one of them and quits ...

    I thought this thread was going to be about Ginger and Mary Ann.

    I blame the teacher's parents for naming him Irwin. He had no chance of controlling that classroom.

    If a college student is preventing another student from learning in their class, then the professor needs to document the behavior and have the student removed from the class. I highly doubt every student deserved this.

    It sounds like this guy has a huge classroom management problem.

    This is a capstone class for seniors ... In such a milieu, shouldn't a professor's "classroom management" ability be a non-issue?

    Don't forget the millionaire's wife. She might be a real cougar.

    I never thought of Lovey as a cougar.

    Do you think this professor became confrontational with his students?

    Do any other professors in that college (was it business?) have this problem to this degree or is it just him?

    And if a student reads a newspaper in class, who cares? They pay for the seat to listen and learn. If they choose not to, that's on them.

    They should have beaten the professor to death. He sucked.

    Obviously, he's a great professor.

    This is the money question (and I suspect I know the answer).

    And, yes, that's essentially a college of business (at TAMU-Galveston, almost everything's maritime this and maritime that, so it's maritime administration).
