Australia Not A Country?

globe

AN online adjunct professor incorrectly told a student that Australia isn’t a country and gave her a borderline failing grade, prompting the University to replace the instructor.

The student chose to study social media use in Australia, but the professor gave her a zero on that portion of the assignment, saying Australia is only a continent, and not a country.

“I want you to understand that any error in a project can invalidate the entire research project,” the professor stated in her email to the student, she goes on:

“Research is like dominoes, if you accidentally knock over one piece the entire set will also fall.”

The dominoes however have not fallen in the lecturer's favour, she's been replaced:

The above statement was released on Twitter, the university said it deeply regrets the interaction between the professor and the student, confirms that the supposed educational institution understands Australian geography, and wishes athletes from Australia good luck in the Olympic Games.

What. A. Save.
