Professor Sacked After Failing A Student For Writing ‘Australia Is A Country ‘
An online adjunct professor of the Southern New Hampshire University, failed a student who wrote that Australia is a country. The professor insisted that Australia isn’t a country and gave her a failing grade, which made the school authority to replace him.
The 27-year-old student in Idaho was assigned to compare American social norms to that of another country. She chose to study social media use in Australia, but the professor gave her a zero on that portion of the assignment, saying Australia is a continent, and not a country.
The University in a statement, said it deeply regrets the interaction between the professor and student, and wished athletes from Australia good luck in the 2018 Winter Olympics.
