Spread The Grades Around

leave a comment »

I can appreicate the thought, but with grade inflation everybody gets A’s anyway.

I think a better avenue to take would be to have all the students with scholarships help pay the tuition of the students without scholarships.

Then again, maybe if I was given the OK to “donate” a part of my gpa score to somebody, I may have done so. When I was in college, I often earned above a 3.5 gpa. So what if a dock off a few points? It’s my gpa; I do what I want — so long as the price is right. Free market, baby.

A California college student is conducting a social experiment where he’s trying to get his peers to sign a petition in favor of distributing grade point averages to show how the federal government distributes wealth.

Oliver Darcy, a recent college graduate, proposes that students with good grades contribute their GPA to their academically sluggish friends. He argues that this is how the federal government takes wealth from the country’s high wage earners and distributes it to the low income earners.

“They all earn their GPA,” said Darcy in an interview with “Fox and Friends.” “So we asked them if they’d be interested in redistributing the GPA points that they earned to students who may be having trouble getting a high GPA.”

Darcy, who films his encounters with teachers and fellow students, doesn’t have much luck selling this theory.
