Professors Behaving Badly...

News from the non-hospitality in education front...

  • A professor at my university makes students who are even a few seconds late sit down in front on the floor of a large, amphitheater sized lecture hall.
  • Another professor announced each time to a graduate class no less that he had better not hear a cell phone go off. One day, a shy Asian woman's phone went off and he called her to the front of the room and asked her to go immediately to the dean's office. She left in tears.
  • Numerous professors at my university lock the door of their rooms when they start the class, thus preventing students with legitimate reasons for tardiness from partaking.

So, readers, got any similar stories?
