Fraud in Academia – When is a C really an F

June 17, 2009

Dr. Walter E. Williams, is on the faculty of George Mason University as John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics an author, a columnist, and other activities.

For those of you who are old enough to remember the SAT exam was re-centered by adding about 100 points to test takers scores, the 100 points is allocated to the sections of the test. The ACT at a counselor’s meeting last fall was complaining about the lower scores they are getting. Of course, it is all the students fault.

Dr. Williams quotes from several sources about the grades earned by students. This is not only Podunk U. , the Ivy League schools are right up there leading the way with grade inflation. Parents and employers should subtract a grade from the report card turned in and consider a “C” as the new “F”.

For a little fun read the article linked to below.

Character Assassination for Political Advantage

June 14, 2009

Have you heard that “Saul Alinsky taught two generations of American leftists” a quote from the article linked to below.

Why bring this up? Alinsky’s name comes up a lot and I wondered who he was or is and how has he influenced our country and our values. As an education blog we have a chance for a little education.

This article gives examples of some of his teaching and how it has been used by the Clinton’s against Obama and others.

Certainly the Clinton’s are not the only users of Alinsky’s teaching. Learn and enjoy.
