Tipping professors is a brilliant idea!

Professors at any competitive university are hired and paid based off of their research and the amount of grants they can get the university. Professor wage/ rank is a result of market forces, but not student market forces. Consider students only a small side product that universities produce.

Fucked up right?

Tipping would actually incentivize all professors to give a damn about their students and make a concerted effort to teach and teach well.

I have had some great teachers. I have had some shit ones. I would love to reward the good ones.

One major problem with this in my experience is that college students, by and large, wouldn't know a decent education if it mushroom-stamped them on the forehead. The best educators often receive poor evaluations, and the laziest (but easy, friendly) educators do well.

Traditionally, it's the other way around. One of the Ivy League schools has something about needing to provide wine and cheese for the students during their final. I had an old-school English prof from there that did just that for our final. Also, it was awesome in other ways. It didn't count for a grade, but that's when you found out *why* he wanted the majority of assignments done in your own handwriting: he compared the handwriting on the final to the earlier assignments to see if the students were the actual authors. I think we had about three folks that had a 'come to Jesus' moment (or a 'come to the Liberal Devil' moment) while I enjoyed some excellent refreshments. That guy did all sorts of stuff that was expressly against the law/campus policies (contract grading, having others grade for him, etc.) and I *loved* his class. It's one of the very few required liberal arts electives that I actually enjoyed.

If only that was true. Market forces work for some of the disciplines but not for others. if you want to make good money get a PhD in Marketing, Finance, Law, Medicine etc. If you want to make a lot less go into History, Sociology, Anthropology, English etc.

Heck, an assistant professor in computing with no experience will get more than a nationally recognized full professor in anthropology.

a just world? Not really, but it is reality.

And all things considered accepting a tip would be really unethical, so sad.

I'm surprised you had anyone who could actually speak English in an engineering program. Did you have to yell at them in foreign tongues, or did you just use hand gestures?

Tips should be based on the tipping customs of the professor's country instead of the country he's currently in.

Actually, come to think of it, teachers frequently receive tips from satisfied patrons. Every Chstmas I get gifts, including a god amount of Panera/Starbucks/Applebees/etc. gift cards from the parents of my students. I don't ask for them or expect it, but I get them.

No way.

I've learned that the job of professors is to write conduct research on subjects that no one cares about in the slightest, and publish them in places that 11 or 12 people in the field have ever heard of. (1)

(1) see page 349, "The Avian Zoological Imperative in the Keynesian Re-Valuation of Dresser Drawers Upon Closing Action by Pseudo-Trans-Gendered Red Coats", The Royal Copenhagen Snuff Journal of Economics and Borscht Recipes, December, 2013.

We always had fun with those forms. One of my law school profs was a borderline elite marathon runner, but was probably 130lbs soaking wet and kind of looked like Harry Potter. So we'd put things like this on his evals:

Strengths: Wizard dueling; running really far
Weaknesses: Forearms
