In eventually phasing out the letter grading system and effectively cancelling any standard of achievement, a growing demographic of patches on elbows college professors are grooming future Democratic voters.
In highly subjective courses such as writing composition, where academic growth and improvement should be the most important criteria and scored and assigned a number or letter, instructors are migrating toward Labor-Based Grading (LBG), not to be confused with LGBTQ, another step of full-scale indoctrination. Although the premise is almost provocative in celebrating the special interest lobby, while the majority shamed into suppression.
LBG allows professors and students to negotiate minimum standards to receive an above average mark at the end of an academic term. For example, an educator at a liberal art institution authored stipulations where students missing no more than two classes per semester, show up on time, turn in all required assignments and engage in collaborative and inclusive discussions would receive a 3.0 or a “B”, regardless of they performed on essays. As history has shown, the detrimental consequences of deliberate inflation hinders the free marketplace of ideas and ultimately finances.
Supporters of the participation trophy style of egregious political correctness argue that the rigged system mitigates cultural biases and provides and equal opportunity for education for those where English is not the first language spoken within a household. LBG, developed through the warped belief system of Arizona State professor Asao B. Inoue, has spread virally through radicalized colleges, including the taxpayer funded California state university system.
While students are encouraged to simply stay within the rigid confines of regurgitating the thesis of authors on their course reading list, and discouraged to explore any semblance of original thought, the integration of the industrial grading model could result in mass groupthink and the elimination of true debate within the next two decades. As the content of Blue Book exams has narrowed to mirror the ideology of the professor, or published academic cohort, students have become adept at repetition in sacrificing individuality for tribalism.
Of course, those on the left side of the political spectrum are ecstatic that any balance in ideas of perspectives will dissipate into the collective as Democratic candidates will endure only a slight resistance. With the popularity of social media and the attention span nearing :12 seconds, the future looks bleak in battling against an ominously vapid, but ceaseless force.
With the American public education system broken and set in decaying vicious cycle, objective disciplines such as math and the sciences, have been deemphasized, as administrators are fortunately unable to find a way to sugarcoat a wrong answer with a stipulation under the premise of equity or reparations. The possibility that 2 + 2= 5 or whatever the overlords decide is still a plausible nightmare, however, the need for tech workers for now ironically, holds the threat at bay.
As students taking the path less traveled towards earning objective-based majors face the unjust biproduct of blatant grade inflation and the void produced by affirmative action, the university experience dollar for dollar exists as one of the riskiest investments in the proximal galaxy. Buying a useless degree approaches the controversial of the colossal pyramid scheme and volatility of cryptocurrency. In both cases, mountain ranges of money rise and then are abruptly transported to the looming skyscrapers and shadows of the China’s ghost cities.
Biden’s forgiveness of student loans only exacerbates a dearth of graduates possessing viable skills to enter the workforce. Adding to the Curry paste recipe of discontent and economic malaise, individuals gently coerced by the public education fiasco, are leaving vital trades scrambling for qualified workers, as the country relies on waves of legal immigrants to fill jobs in the mechanical and construction fields.
Unfortunately, those minions of extremism who embrace LBG have convinced the younger generations that aptitude is an unnecessary evil, and entitlement supersedes hard work. While common sense is caught within the radicalized vortex of a funnel cloud, the continuation of the social experiment originated by pseudo-intellectual demagogues has evolved into standard operating procedure and the near future is tedious at best.
If only could constituents grade the graders, the freakish interlude of idealistic absolutes militarized politics would be limited to state-funded panic rooms.
