I have observed the same thing.
There is a lot of preechy professors. And they have been beating that point to a pulp.
I guess that is what happens when you get a socialist education and can't get a job in the real world.
My rule of thumb is to seek out professors at the university I go to that have either worked, or are working in the professions that they teach. There is another rule I have to seek out professors that used to teach in the old community college system before it merged with the university system, but that only applies to my school.
For example the best accounting professor I have had so far, oddly enough did that in real life FOR YEARS
. All of the instructors who who taught the A&P classes I had where licensed A&P's themselves.
The absolute worst professors are those straight out of college with worthless degrees, I have only had to find myself walking out on one. It was a new just out of college philospohy professor (BTW I needed the GER that's why I even considered taking the class). This was the fall of 01, and I think we all know what big event happened then. Well he then decided to hold a couple of classes that would have fit well with the muslium mantra that we brought it on ourselves.
I dropped the class before I got ticked off enough to physically drop the twerp. Sad part is that this professor still teaches and preaches his own brand of left wing bullshit to students (pardon the language).
Oh, I love who think students are there to serve them. I actually get a great pleasure out of reminding them that they are working through me. I am playing their employeer to provide me with a service. A lot of them get really offended by that
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.
