Grade Inflation

There is now a web site you can link to if you are interested in the problem of grade inflation at America’s colleges and universities. It is hosted by a professor at Duke who has not given anything below a "B" in two years. It merits a serious look; very useful and clear. Here is an op-ed Prof. Stuart Rojstaczer (it’s his web site) wrote on it in the WaPo, and here is another on the problem by Harvey Mansfield. His solution is to give two grades, one public (phony) and one private (actual). It’s a huge problem.

I would be happy to get just one grade.... hint: Churchill Class.
