Again then why are the Deans AND president of OSU, after seeing the FULL and real story, not taking any action as well?
Sorry, sounds like a bunch of poltical BS from a sore robinson.
Well in all fairness, they watch each others backs. If they overturn the professors decision, that would mean they would have to punish him some how. I mean you can't just overturn something like that and forget it ever happened. Since these guys are in to help each other and the prof probably has tenure, the kids suffer.
Universities are practically all about indoctrination now, the story given by the OP makes sense but we'll probably never know for sure. People do this kind of shit all the time in every walk of life.
