You think college professors don’t have balls?
Irwin Horwitz thinks you think professors don’t have balls and he’s here to show you he’s got a sac. Because he will fail you and you and you and you and every fucking one of you if you fuck around in his class.
That’s what he did to his Strategic Management students. Horwitz is a professor at Texas A&M Galveston and was tired of all the bullshit he saw from his class this semester. In a scathing email to his students, he outlined their trash behavior.
He said the students proved to be incompetent and lack the maturity level to enter the workforce.
In the email he cited examples of students cheating, telling him to “chill out,” and inappropriate conduct.
He said students spread untrue rumors about him online, and he said at one point he even felt the need to have police protection in class.
“I was dealing with cheating, dealing with individuals swearing at me both in and out of class, it got to the point that the school had to put security guards at that class and another class,” said Horowitz.
The actual text of the email is HOT. From Inside Higher Ed:
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…
None of you, in my opinion, given the behavior in this class, deserve to pass, or graduate to become an Aggie, as you do not in any way embody the honor that the university holds graduates should have within their personal character. … 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.”
Damn. Damn. What the fuck students? To show them he wasn’t messing around, to show them tough love, and to teach the few well-behaved students about the true cost of their inaction in the face of their cohorts antics, Horwitz failed the whole fucking class.
Unfortunately, the Academic Affairs department does not have the same kind of rod Horwitz does and announced the grades would not stick. A substitute professor will finish teaching the class.
