RE: PROFESSORGATE

|

Is there resentment out there or what? An FBer still ticked 15 years later:

In addition to the new-edition scam, I had several professors back in college that required every student to purchase whatever textbook that professor had written. Even if it wasn’t actually used in the class. Even if it wasn’t even *related* to the class. One of my professors even told the class that if we wanted to give him cash to offset his royalty, he’d let the requirement of actually purchasing the book slide.

I take all this, of course, as an argument for a classical education. Explanations, though, will cost you.
