    “None of you, in my opinion, given the behavior in this class, deserve to pass, or graduate to become an Aggie, as you do not in any way embody the honor that the university holds graduates should have within their personal character,” he wrote in the e-mail, which was published by Inside Higher Ed.

    Horwitz, who has taught management for two decades at six universities, according to his faculty bio, said that this class was his worst in all his years of teaching.

    Seems this “management” professor might want to explore some alternate methods for managing a class.

    Probably had to deal with some obnoxious kids that put him through hell, but it seems like an experienced professor could have found a way to work though it. You can't fail everybody.

    If there's an objective standard and not a curve, then theoretically you could. Although it sounds more like this guy is just making an emotional overreaction.
