Sooner or later, enough is enough.
Irwin Horwitz, a college professor with 20 years experience, apparently found his tipping point. He just failed his entire management class at Texas A & M Galveston, and announced that he would no longer be teaching the course.
An email to the class said, in part, "I am frankly and completely disgusted. You all lack the honor and maturity to live up to the standards that Texas A&M holds, and the competence and/or desire to do the quality work necessary to pass the course just on a grade level," he wrote, "I will no longer be teaching the course, and [you] all are being awarded a failing grade."
That blanket fail probably won’t take. University officials say that the grades will be reassessed and the department head will take over Horwitz's class for the remainder of the semester. Some students need the required course to graduate with business degrees in May.
