Irwin Horwitz, a professor at Texas A&M University, wants to fail his entire class. He said so in an e mail which he sent to the University’s administration as well as the students in his class on strategic management, which was obtained by Inside Higher Ed.

The e mail stated, “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 ‘fucking 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….”

Talk about a frustrated teacher!

This is the kind of behavior that you would expect to hear about occurring in a public high school class. Surely not in a university.

The university responded with a statement saying that no student whose grades warrant a passing final grade in the course will be failed. Texas A&M did promise too take disciplinary action against any student who it finds to have behaved inappropriately.

Horowitz is no longer teaching the class.
