Let’s make everyone above average

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. ┬áStarting 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.
