Nice guy, but graded unfairly. Gave us a mid-term and final(which were our only 2 tests) and made them "creative" and "interpretive" take home essays, and then gave the majority of the class a low grade because we didnt give him what he wanted,meanwhile he didnt clearly explain …more EXACTLY what he wanted on these exams. less

this professor was cool, but vague. He never explained what he wanted from us, all we knew 1/2 way through the semester after the whole class got Cs on the midterms, that we needed to include the 4 pillars, even then, he never gave us a good grade. I didnt get the point of his debates, and didnt …more understand his logic and vague outlook on the class less

I have to agree with everyone else. He was very unclear with what he wanted from us. All of his assignment sheets were written with poor syntax and they were never clear. The assignments were only clear after he graded them and told us that he wanted.

professor was really a cool guy. many of the students in the class seem to want an easy "A" without having to come to class, think too hard, or read the material. he put everything we needed to do well in the syllabus. those who came to class and did all the work did well.

This professor is perhaps the worse teacher I ever had. Nothing was clear, He stated if you come to class and do the work you will get atleast a "B+", Bull, if you were able to guess what he wanted you could do well. I was never absent, did all the reading, which is unneccessary b/c all …more his lecture is him reading right from the textbook. WORSE!!! less

Great Professor loved his class he was extremely informative and he sheds light on issues that are swept under the rug. If u are easily offended u shouldnt take this class but if u would like a better understanding of the world and its in justices in America's school system he will definately …more educated u on that. This class is geared to educators less

This professor is horribe....never clear about anything....he gives out group assignments to be completed in class and then never gives us enough time to finish them, he'll then proceed to give us a horrible grade because we weren't able to complete the assignment....depressing class all together...

Seems like students in the class had a problem with Dr. Lightfoot's discussion of sensitive issues like racism, classism, sexism, etc. They wanted to brand him **** and biased which is unfair. He is the best professor to learn such issues from because he insists that you consider the facts, draw …more your own conclusions and think for yourself. less
