    Default My Professor: Getting him fired

    Let's start this again.

    I want my professor fired. Is their any possible way to do it?

    Original OP
    I'm currently in my 3rd year at university. Now, this semester has been particularly hell for me. I'm experiencing the worst professor in my life teaching me 3/6 subjects. I'm laughing hysterically at my thoughts to get him fired and I'm going to take action. The question is, how? Talking to the dean is like talking to a brick wall. The only answer we (yes, other people complained to) get is "I'll talk to him". Of course nothing happened. He'll ruin these subjects for me if I don't do anything soon. Of course fantasizing about blowing up his car won't do any good. So we need to take some action.
    We:

    - talked to him (he thinks he's always right and we're wrong)
    - talked to the dean
    - made a petition of names from the whole class
    - talked to the assistants

    Nothing...
    I'm not the type to resort to framing but if I just might if this goes on. I need a way to fire him. I thought I might send an email from an unknown email address in an internet cafe pretending I'm an official talking about how he has been part of a mental institute or something similar. Think it will work?

    He is very much an ESTJ.

    Having bad teachers is hell. You haven't thought about changing school, or such?
    Blowing up cars is so tempting, sometimes But some ESTJs inspires me to knife murdering, rather than the impersonal execution by bomb. Hmmph.

    Haha. Yea, but knife murdering is more easy to track down though.

    Changing schools, in my current situation, is not an option. There are too many things that I would have to consider.

    Depends entirely upon proper disposal.
    Eww.. Joking aside. Dig up dirt on him. Find who dislikes him the most.
    I'd be looking at other professors... They always seem to have some kind of inhouse rivalry going on.

    He's a new professor. It's his first year on the job. So it wouldn't work.

    Well, come on, answer the question. Tell us what he does that's driving you to complain.

    There is very little that will be done in the middle of the semester unless there's an extraordinary complaint about him - he never shows up etc... Other than that, if everyone gives him a bad evaluation at the end of the semester, it will show on his record.

    Like others have asked, what is he doing/not doing that is causing distress?

    Why must you insist that I talk details? Can't you just take my word for it?

    Just to go with it though here's a few things:

    1. Usually the average grade grade for assignment hand-ins are 8/10. The best of the best students have gotten a range from 3-6/10 with this guy. He didn't give over a 6. Mind you, assignments are important as they determine 20% of the final grade of the subject.

    2. The guy is always right... according to him. Anything you say or submit to him is wrong. It will always be wrong. If I were the most talented guy on the subject that ever lived it would still be wrong. You are wrong even if you are Leonardo Da Vinci.

    3. If he explains something and we do it exactly as he says he says it's wrong. Where is the fucking logic in that. He explains 'y' and expects us to do 'x'.

    There's much more I can say. I'm just not in the mood put them down.

    You can imagine all the negatives of a stereotypical ESTJ and that would be a good description of him.
