HUH? University Of Wisconsin Says Good Grades Should Be Distributed Equally…Based On Race

uwm-643x330

I assume the university will make sure these students receive equal pay at equal jobs?

First there was affirmative action. Then the University of Michigan decided to accept students based on the color of their skin. Now, the University of Wisconsin-Madison believes grades should be apportioned based on race:

The policy, named the “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.”

Huh? UWM professor W. Lee Hansen wrote about his concerns with the ridiculous politically correct policy late last week: 

“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.” 

The good professor also took the university to task over how students of one race could prohibit students of other races from selecting their major:

“Suppose there were a surge of interest in a high demand field such as computer science. 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.”

As the famous Austrian economist F.A. Hayek said: “There is all the difference in the world between treating people equally and attempting to make them equal.”

Should universities “level the playing field” via “equal” distribution of grades – based solely on race? Yeah, no.

  3. Thanks for the reblogs, guys.

  4. I can’t imagine how this kind of guideline could work. How could any potential employer make an accurate decision based on a job candidate’s grades? I think they’re putting something in the cheese up there.

  5. It is no good complaining about this or that policy of the taxpayer supported universities – after all even under the old system the most leftist students in the class got the best grades (is that really better than doing it by skin color?). Bite the bullet – end taxpayer money for universities (including no more government backed “student loans”).

  6. So even the idea of meritocracy is quietly binned – to be replaced by status by government ascription – but not if you are intelligent.
