Quality and grades are so RAYCISSS!
Faculty workshops designed to persuade teachers not to grade based upon merit are popping up at universities from Washington, D.C. to the potato capital of the world.
One can't help but laugh at this:
This workshop is reminiscent of one held in February at American University, designed to teach faculty “how to assess writing without judging its quality.”
Titled “Grading ain’t just grading” and promising to help teachers rethink “writing assessment ecologies toward antiracist ends,” the workshop warned that “the practices of grading writing” maintained “White language supremacy.”
As one guy in the comments says, we should just let minorities print their own diplomas. Of course, that would stop the gravy train of universities.
