In the UCLA case, it sounds to me like the aggrieved students should be enrolled in an arts class where interpretive spelling, punctuation and grammar would be welcome. This kind of thing is seen in visual arts, poetry, fictional writing, etc., but if the course Prof. Rust was teaching was none of these, they should definitely be corrected.

How did UCLA handle it?

Val Rust, a professor of education and information at UCLA, was the target of the protestors for what they feel was racial insensitivity. Describing themselves as “aggrieved minority students,” they claim that the professor was wrong to correct spelling, punctuation, and grammar in the papers of black students.

The lone example the protesters put forth was this: he told a black female student that the word “indigenous” should not be capitalized. The student felt this correction was “ideologically motivated.” Indigenous is an adjective and should not be capitalized unless it’s at the beginning of a sentence.

Um.... ?

I'm not sure which is the bigger WTF here.... the fact that a teacher would behave this way, or the fact that this is considered a wrongful termination. More like a WTF squared.... imagine Samuel L. Jackson as a teacher... on his worst day.....

In February Duval County [Florida] School District officials gave Joyce Quiller, 51 her walking papers after finding that she routinely used obscenities in class.

For example, the investigation found that Quiller asked a student who failed to bring a pencil to class: “What is the point in coming to the motherfucking class if you do not bring materials?”

Quiller taught 10th- and 11th-graders in The Bridge to Success program at Ribault High School. The program is for students who are at least two years older than they should be for their grade levels.

The math teacher allegedly told another student to “shut the fuck up.” Still another student charged that Quiller, who is black, “criticizes him and calls him” the n-word. Specifically, she allegedly scolded a group of male students who walked into class late by saying: “You all are some lazy n*****s for coming to class late.” She was also allegedly in the habit of sometimes refusing to accept students’ completed assignments or even answer questions about math.

Those actions weren’t enough to constitute grounds for termination, though, according to a judge who ruled in Quiller’s favor last month.

“Quiller was placed in an almost untenable situation,” the judge wrote, according to The Florida Times-Union. “She did not have all the tools needed to work with the students, and her classes were too large. Nevertheless, she was expected to maintain her composure and professionalism.”

In a 21-page ruling, the judge expounded that the school district should have suspended the teacher without pay based on stipulations in her union contract, notes Jacksonville television station WJXT.

Quiller’s union-provided lawyer, Stephanie Schaap, had no comment for the local press because, she said, the case is not yet fully resolved. Incidentally, she has been reprimanded twice in the past for her verbal behavior in class. Highlights of her prior troubles include an incident when she used the phrase “your mammy” and an incident when she told a student to “get out of my fucking class.” Another time, she told a student: “Pull your damn pants up."

Well, kudos for telling them to "pull your damn pants up"....

I can teach you all some chemistry which is capable of considerably greater destruction.

Actually, I'm pretty sure the FBI flagged my computer years ago. A little triazidomethane will earn you a spot on their watch list....

PG,

Put them (the homework. Not the kids) in a closed container with some baking soda and vinegar and shake.

In 6th grade, my science fair project was an erupting volcano. I think those were the active ingredients, an acid and a base.

Today, the only active ingredients needed are a good looking woman and a baggy pair of boxers.
