List of Grievances RE:BBUS300 sign now

We, the students of the University of Washington, Bothell, grow increasingly dissatisfied with the quality of the education we are receiving in the 1:15PM and 5:45PM BBUS300 class, and with the instructor, Dr. Ron Schwartz. Below is a list of our grievances:

1. Quizzes are written unfairly, and often contain semantically different answers.
2. When honest mistakes in quizzes are found, students have to fight to receive a fair grade.
3. Inadequate preparation for quizzes and exams that are worth nearly 40\% of our total grade (class time is spent on seemingly irrelevant exercises).
4. Lack of instructor attention during presentations.
5. Inappropriate comments made to the class in regards to changes in class policy (e.g. laptop use is now only allowed if used to search and share pornography, side discussions only allowed when making marriage proposals).
6. Class discussion is severely restricted and does not promote a positive learning experience.
7. The instructors teaching style is a poor fit for the material being taught.

While we respect Dr. Schwartz and his accomplishments, and are certain that he is an otherwise excellent instructor, we feel that his style and attitude towards the class is a detriment to our learning ability, and that our current grades do not accurately reflect our knowledge of the subject.

Dr. Schwartz is making changes, offering study guides and including a small number of questions on the quizzes that cover material discussed in class, however, irreparable damage to our grades has already occurred.

We formally request a hearing with Dr. Steve Holland, with the hopes that an equitable remedy can be discussed and implemented.
