Universal Grade Change Form

I just discovered this hilarious Universal Grade Change Form on Stephen Hicks' website

Of course, the sad thing about the form is the obsession with grades, rather than what the students actually learned. Why this happens is a topic for another time.

The end effect of the quarterly grade change dance is that it creates a climate where "who you are" is far more important than "what you do."

To succeed in this world, one need simply be from a socially acceptable group, look good and vote present.

Who knows? if you play the game well and learn how to put up a good image without ever actually saying anything; you could grow up to president.

Back to the subject. It is ironic that, while humming a mantra of tolerance, modern liberals have constructed a school system more prone to judging people on who they are than the classical liberal system they claimed to be reforming.
