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

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.
