A professor at Emmanuel College was fired after leading a disucssion on the Virginia Tech shootings that included the educator pointing a marker at students and saying "POW." This despite being encouraged by school administrators to engage the students in discussion. The professor, Nicholas Winset, posted a defense of his actions on YouTube.
"A classroom is supposed to be a place for academic exploration," Winset, who taught financial accounting, told the Boston Herald.
Is this academic exploration or imporoper behavior?
