If one of two evaluations came back negative but the majority of the evaluations came back neutral or positive, it is likely the negative ones would be written off as a few disgruntled students.
However, if the majority of evaluations came back with negative and disturbing comments on them, they would be investigated, and if found true, disciplinary action would [and should] be taken.
