The Advocate: Professor’s removal irks group

LSU faculty and a national professors association are upset about LSU removing a professor from teaching a class in the middle of the semester for allegedly grading too harshly.

The LSU chapter of the American Association of University Professors approved sending a written complaint Monday to LSU System President John Lombardi alleging a “violation of academic freedom and faculty rights” for changing student grades after the professor was unseated.
