At the University of Prince Edward Island, a history lecturer's attempt to get his students to reveal their types in the first week goes awry:
P.E.I. professor fired for no-show marking. A history professor who offered students a mark of 70 per cent if they opted out of his class has been fired by the University of Prince Edward Island. David Weale said he has "no regrets" about promising the mark to students who dropped out as long as they had paid their tuition...
Weale said his offer was an effort to deal with chronic overcrowding in classrooms, weeding out students who weren't really interested in his course.
Has there been any instructor who hasn't been tempted to make this very same deal? I thought not.
