HAVING A BAD ONE
NYU GRADE GRUBBERS: Social media slammed the 82 NYU students that signed a petition last spring complaining a professor’s organic chemistry class was too hard and could threaten their chances of getting into medical school. The university responded by firing the award-winning professor, Maitland Jones Jr., who refused to lower his standards.
NYU just fired an organic chemistry professor because students complained that his class was too hard.
