Try a Homberger Test
Were questions on a biology test reasonable, or reason to remove a professor from class? Take a look and judge for yourself.
Halfway through the spring semester, officials at Louisiana State University at Baton Rouge pulled Dominique G. Homberger, a tenured professor of biology, from a large lecture course for nonmajors. Too many of her students were failing or dropping out of the course, officials said. Ms. Homberger has filed a grievance and demanded an apology.
