    That would be handy for some professors.
    Funny. When I went to OIT, unlike the college I’d been at. every department had a person you just didn’t want to take a class from. One guy got kicked out of 3 universities because he couldn’t teach and OIT gave him tenure.
    University I went to later had only three flakes in the sciences that I ran across. Two were also instructors in the Women’s Studies curriculum. After finding out how one of them graded for invertebrate biology (men got C’s, women got A’s) I changed it to audit. Another set off inner alarm bells when I met her. Didn’t know why. Then she was caught one morning with one of her students in her office. Wasn’t the first time. Not the kind of hard work I want to do for a good grade, thank you very much. Like other modern universities, the admin just ignored it. If it’d been a guy they’d have fired him. I avoided that instructor. Third was a guy of the modern ecotick variety. Totally in lala land. The other professors used to mess with his mind. One time he was asked what he’d do if he found a bear in a trap. He said he’d let it go. One of the other professors said under his breath in disbelief “idiot”.

    Ahh, professors. Learning which ones to avoid is a skill every college student needs.

    And now there"s even a website you can use that contains reviews on teachers – so you can determine which teachers actually teach and which ones don’t care….
