Cavaliere believes that "it has been exaggerated by a group of students habitual problems that occur in classes and that have much more to do with the massification of classrooms and communication errors than with a teacher malpractice for me".
In the same document, he says he could not put the partial notes "due to gastroenteritis" on time. He complains that when "I was still sick, I delivered the notes to the department, the disciplinary file was already under way."
However, the students were outraged on the day of the January exam and assured that "it is impossible to evaluate us of a subject that we have not given and in which we are self-taught. "In addition, the work that they had to present and that represented 30% of the final grade was rated with 223 zeros and fourteen more suspensions with other qualifications.
