University Grading Based On Race, NOT Merit

Posted By Julia Dent On 10:40 AM 07/22/2014 In | No Comments


The University of Wisconsin-Madison has taken affirmative action to a new level. Instead of giving grades on how well you do in class, grades will be determined by race.

The new policy, called “Framework for Diversity and Inclusive Excellence,” calls for “proportional participation of historically underrepresented racial-ethnic groups at all levels of an institution, including high-status special programs, high-demand majors, and in the distribution of grades,” according to IJ Review.

UWM Professor Emeritus W. Lee Hansen was angered by the policy, and wrote about his concerns, Western Journalism reports.

“Suppose there were a surge of interest in a high demand field such as computer science,” he said. “Under the ‘equity’ policy, it seems that some of those who want to study this field would be told that they’ll have to choose another major because computer science already has ‘enough’ students from their ‘difference’ group.”

“Professors, instead of just awarding the grade that each student earns, would apparently have to adjust them so that academically weaker, ‘historically underrepresented racial/ethnic’ students perform at the same level and receive the same grades as academically stronger students.”

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
