From Don Boudreaux’s news story, Minimum Grade:
WASHINGTON (CH) — In a bold effort to improve the educational fortunes of students who perform at academic levels significantly below the average of their peers, Congress has mandated a minimum grade to be assigned to each student in each course taught at any school in the country. Starting in September, it shall be unlawful for any teacher, professor, or instructor charged with assigning course grades to assign to any student a grade lower than C-.
I don’t think Fair Academic Standards Act goes far enough. There should only be one grade: ‘A’. Then, finally, all students can enjoy the benefits of academic success.
