The Times also reported that "Mr. Esteban’s page on the school’s Web site shows that last spring he taught a class titled 'Global IV.' One of his homework assignments required students to write a brief paper saying whether they agreed or disagreed that Napoleon was the child of the French Revolution.'" We don't know why they reported this, but they did. According to his LinkedIn profile, he graduated from McGill University with an M.A. in Islamic studies and a GPA of 3.95. Grades, of course, can be deceiving.
Esteban's webpage has since been taken down from the school site. No word yet on whether he'll remain employed.
