Open Letter to Colleagues Who Sent Three Students Who Failed an Assignment into My Classroom to Tape This Colleague and to Recruit Students for a Bogus CUNY Complaint Proceedure

This is what the AAUP said:

Dear Gregg Morris,

Thank you for your inquiry, which has been forwarded to me.  Since we do not have data regarding abuse of student complaints against faculty members, I can only say anecdotally that such accounts do cross my desk on occasion.  More often, we see administrators eager to use the student complaint process against a faculty member whom they perceive as troublesome.

This ain’t over until it’s over.

The Hunter Administration Greatly Appreciated?
