Public universities are telling professors not to grade based on merit.
One program’s stated goal is to help participants gain knowledge of, demonstrate commitment to, and become a campus leader in promoting diversity, equity and inclusion.

The College Fix reported that Boise State University (BSU) is the latest in a long line of schools to jump on the ‘inclusive grading’ bandwagon. This week, the university is hosting an event called “Inclusive Teaching Means Inclusive Grading, Too.” The event is part of a larger certificate program, called Boise State Uniting for Inclusion and Leadership in Diversity (BUILD).
Information regarding the event could not be accessed, but other events with the same name offered insight into what is now being taught. From the Fix:
“BSU’s event has the exact same name as a previous University of Tennessee-Knoxville faculty workshop. It was aimed to “engage instructors in conversations and activities designed to foreground diversity and inclusion in considerations of assessment and grading practices.”
The University of Michigan held a faculty workshop with a near-identical name as well. The Center for Research on Learning and Teaching stated on its website that attending teachers would “be asked to review their own practices” on grading throughout the event. More
Who would’ve ever imagined that college would be handing out participation ribbons instead of earned grades? I hope the engineer designing the bridges I drive across wasn’t graded this way in school.
At this point we might as well start providing them with blankets, pillows and nap time.
You know, Pre K routine.

Too many college students have been brainwashed with liberal propaganda like this. Then when they get out into the real world they are at an even further disadvantage.
Isn’t it racist to assume people of color aren’t smart enough to be graded on the quality of their work?Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
