Temple University / Injustice of American education system
In my 6th year in college, I have never meet an irresponsible professor nor ever file a grievance nor every said anything bad to a professor even though he may have been unethical at times but the result I have from the semester left my philosophy to be changed. The chairman and the head of my College who judge all grievances granted that the professor did no wrong.
In my class, I and others would ask a question, the professor ignores most of them, or if answered upon, the professor will asked his favourite students to answer them, often ignored because it does not respect what the professor concept he was teaching. When the favourite students ask a question to the professor, they ignore the professor because they can't understand what he was explaining. When exam time comes, the professor would not offer any help but just repeating 'go read the book'. Overall everyone failed all the tests, but the grade curve left me in a bad luck situation where I wind up 1 point away from a passing grade.
The thing that bothers me the most is when the chairman hears my case, he stated there was never a complaint about this professor for 20 yrs which then never really listen to my case at all. And when the head of the college came in reviewing my case, they just said the overall majority got a 'C', they never actually examine my case.
Lastly, what Temple University is doing they want me to go to common pleas court, hoping time and expenses on either writing a draft or hiring a lawyer, force me to withdraw the case. This class was just an elective for me and I'll be graduating. This grievance doesn't matter to me anymore soon.
