College Students may be entitled to refunds for poor professor language skills

In this article we see a new North Dakota Bill that may require colleges and universities to refund tuition for torturing students with instructors who do not speak English:


Some North Dakota college students can adapt to a foreign-born math instructor who says "mattresses" when he means "matrices" and "mother" when he means "method."


Anyone who has studied computer science at a major university knows all-about this issue where the poor language skills of the professor make it impossible to understand the topic.  Hard sciences and computer majors have long been attractive to foreign students who do not want to be bothered to learn to communicate effectively in English.  Many of these people go-on to work for major software companies such as Microsoft and Oracle.


House Bill 1364 sponsor Rep. Bette Grande, R-Fargo, introduced the bill because the decade-old campus policies on instructors with poor English aren't working, she said.


She said college students or their parents are paying for a product and should be able to have it delivered "in a proper form." She said she has had many complaints about classes that had to be dropped because the instructor was unintelligible.


One Grand Forks parent said her daughter complained about an instructor's poor English to University of North Dakota officials "and she was told UND would not do anything because the instructor needed the practice," the mother wrote to Grande.


Many Oracle professionals have the same complaints with Oracle Technical support, where the support person cannot be understood.  As Oracle continues to recruit non-USA workers, the ability to communicate in English may remain an issue for Oracle customers.
