Students Complained About UAH Prof. Charged In Rampage
Huntsville, AL – Students say they complained to administrators about an Alabama professor accused of killing three colleagues and wounding three others in a shooting rampage during a faculty meeting.
The students upset with biology professor Amy Bishop told The Associated Press they went to University of Alabama in Huntsville administrators at least three times, complaining she was ineffective in the classroom and had odd, unsettling ways.
A petition signed by dozens of students was sent to the department head. But students said the complaints made a year ago didn't result in any changes in the classroom.
Bishop was denied tenure last year and was in her final semester when she was accused of shooting her colleagues to death Friday.
