KU professor told student to 'learn English,' reports say. He's suspended from class

An engineering professor at the University of Kansas has been suspended from teaching a class after he reportedly told a student who was using a translator to “learn English,” according to the Lawrence Journal-World.

The professor, Gary Minden, told the Journal-World and the The University Daily Kansan he made the comment recently at the start of class after he saw a student using a translator on their cellphone.

Minden is a professor of electrical engineering and computer science, according to the university’s website.

The course he was teaching at the time of the remark was on embedded systems, The Kansan reported. A syllabus posted online says students are prohibited from using electronic devices during the class.

1. A blight on the liberal tradition of the mighty KU campus.

2. THIS IS RETARDED

How do you take an electrical - computer class without using electrical devices?? Planned failure in a "conservative" state which suppresses education......I am so glad I did not have my education back EAST. The west coast rules, Nor Cal Forever!!!

3. I don't think I have enough energy to generate any outrage over this.

Always found it reasonable to expect rules to be followed.
