Evaluation of the Day: Texas A&M Professor Fails Entire Class Then Quits

You could describe this as one epic fail.

Irwin Horwitz couldn’t deal with the rude, incompetent students in his Strategic Management class anymore, so he gave them all an “F” and got the F out of there.

“I finally reached a breaking point,” the Texas A&M professor told KPRC News. “It became apparent that they couldn’t do some of the most simple and basic things they should have been able to do.”

He sent a nasty email to all of the students, informing them of his decision and calling them out for cheating, making fun of him and just having a general disrespect for the class.

He claims one of them even called him a “f-cking moron” to his face.

Part of the message via Inside Higher Ed:

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. It is thus for these reasons why I am officially walking away from this course. 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…. I will no longer be teaching the course, and all are being awarded a failing grade.

While many of the allegations are being investigated, the school said that their grades will be re-evaluated.

“No student who passes the class academically will be failed. That is the only right thing to do,” a spokesperson told Inside Higher Ed.

Fine Print Lesson of the Day: Rapper Juicy J Awards Biology Student with $50,000 Scholarship

Last summer, rapper Juicy J announced via Twitter that he was going to award "...a 50K scholarship to the best chick that can twerk." Despite the huge response from fans, Juicy insists that twerking was not an actual requirement to win. "50K is a lot of money and I don't want to waste it on some chick twerkin' her ass," he says. "Next time I send a Tweet out about a scholarship take it serious and read the words!"
He awarded the money to Zaire Holmes, a 19-year-old mother and student at the State College of Florida who did read all of the rules and explained in a video (which she did not twerk in) why she deserved the money. "A lot of people thought you had to twerk, but you actually had to read the rules," explains Holmes. "I'm a biology major so the scholarship would be able to cover all of my lab expenses."

HoboJacket is a "competitive platform where you can donate your rival college's jackets and shirts to the unfortunate because it's terribly unfortunate that people actually went to that other college." The winter coat drive project was conceived by Massachusetts Institute of Technology student Jin Pan. For more deets, check out the interview with Pan over at The Daily Dot.

UPDATE (11/29): Hobojacket.tk has been taken down by Pan, citing insensitivity of the concept.
