Earlier this week the New York Times reported that a student, Phil Garber, Jr., was asked by his professor not to verbally participate in his class at County College of Morris in Randolph.
Garber, Jr., 16, stutters when he speaks, and his professor emailed him with a request not to ask questions in class because he takes up too much time.
The student's father, Phil Garber, Sr., is managing editor for the Observer Tribune and Mt. Olive Chronicle, weekly newspapers in western Morris County. Garber, Sr. wrote an editorial piece, saying his son would not back down from abusive behavior.
