|To flee, or not to flee. That is the question.

So, I've got this horrible, mind-numbing cognition and learning class right now with a professor who couldn't teach his way out of a wet paper bag. His exams have virtually nothing to do with the "study guides" he distributes before exams, he steals other people's presentations off of google to use in class, he discourages students from asking questions, and he's pretty much beaten any intrest I might've had in the subject into a bloody pulp. I and the rest of the psych majors who sit near me are just completely exasperated.
Not surprisingly, my grades on the exams (the only graded assignments in the class, period) have been less than stellar, despite my best efforts. I'm pretty much completely dependent on financial aid and getting good grades for my tuition, and this course looks like it's going to take my GPA and make it sink like a lead weight. However, all is not lost; Since I have accommadations through the disability services for students, I've got a chance to flee from this sinking ship long after my peers have been doomed by the passing of the withdrawl period for classes.
However, this class is a requirement for my major.
Should I suck it up and take the hit so I can have the whole thing behind me, or should I withdraw (with exactly ten teaching days left) and take it at a later date with a far better prof.?
I don't see why I should have to suffer for his incompetence, but I would like to graduate on time...
