Professor Fired For Adding Strippers To Curriculum

I would've gone to college had it been more like this.

La Salle University moved swiftly to suspend a professor when it was discovered he had actually made it interesting to go to class.

In what is considered a most egregious error in the modern school system, a professor thought outside the box in trying to reach his students. Apparently La Salle University would want only the merits of such a topic as “statistics” to shine through without any embellishment or edutainment.

Jack Rappaport, professor of statistics at the business school, was teaching an extra credit seminar at a satellite campus on the application of Platonic and Hegelian ethics to business.

What can go wrong, you ask?

Two anonymously quoted students told Philadelphia City Paper that women dressed in bikinis or miniskirts were on hand from the start of the session, which included about 30 students.

Throughout the lecture, the women gave lap dances to Rappaport and willing students – who had each paid $150 to attend the class on “the application of Platonic and Hegelian ethics to business,” the paper reported.

One fifty to attend a class on Plato and Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel and ogle strippers? I’m sold.

On the website RateMyProfessors.com, students described him as everything from “great instructor” to an “easy A,” with one student remarking in a review from 2004:

“Extremely strange man. Loves gambling, horse racing, and strip joints. Talks about all of the above all the time.”

In addition to his teaching load, Rappaport also served on the university’s committee on academic integrity.

God bless America.
