Professor Claims Australia Is Not A Country: Fails Student Final

A professor at Southern New Hampshire University gave a student an F on her final for portraying Australia as a country, telling the student it was only a continent!

The educator, whose name has been kept private, has been since fired from the university.

Ashley Arnold, a 27-year-old stay-at-home mom from Idaho Falls, Idaho, was recently doing a project for an online sociology degree with SNHU.

The final project required her to compare a social norm in the U.S. and another country. Ashley chose to look at social media use in Australia.

Ashley got her project outline back on February 1. She was shocked to discover she had failed the assignment. Her professor said it was because Australia is not a real country.

“At first I thought it was a joke… Then as I continued to read, I realized she was for real,” said Ashley.

Arnold said her assignment was to compare a social norm between the United States and another country. She chose Australia, and was “shocked” when she received a failing grade because her professor believed “Australia is a continent; not a country.”

In response to the grade, Arnold wrote her professor an email with references from the school’s library. They, of course, stated that Australia was both a continent and a country.

“I want you to understand that any error in a project can invalidate the entire research project,” the professor responded to Arnold. “Research is like dominoes, if you accidentally knock over one piece the entire set will also fall.”

Looks like such a silly error can get a professor fired as well.

“We deeply regret the interaction between our professor and our student and have apologized to the student and refunded her for the class,” the school stated. “Following an investigation, we have replaced the instructor as we strive to adhere to the highest standards of integrity and accuracy in educating our students.”

How does someone end up a college professor and not know Australia is a country? I am baffled!
