Stuttering NJ college student told not to speak
RANDOLPH, N.J. - October 12, 2011 (WPVI) -- Officials at a community college in New Jersey are not saying whether they disciplined an adjunct professor who asked a stuttering student not to speak.
The County College of Morris acknowledged Elizabeth Snyder acted improperly and officials expressed disappointment with an e-mail that the history professor sent to 16-year-old Philip Garber Jr.
The Star-Ledger of Newark obtained a copy of the e-mail in which the professor urged Garber to save his questions for after class "so we do not infringe on other students time."
Administrator Bette Simmons told the newspaper Snyder should have advised classmates to be patient with Garber.
Garber says he's happy with how the matter was resolved. But he switched sections of the class to prevent "unforeseen bad consequences."
