Skip to comments.UW-Madison policy calls on professors to distribute grades based on race

Political correctness has now reached an entirely new stratosphere: The University of Wisconsin-Madison believes grades should be apportioned based on race:
Campus Reform reports:
The policy, named the Framework for Diversity and Inclusive Excellence, calls for proportional participation of historically underrepresented racial-ethnic groups at all levels of an institution, including high-status special programs, high-demand majors, and in the distribution of grades.
Huh? UWM professor W. Lee Hansen wrote about his concerns with the ridiculous politically correct policy late last week:
Professors, instead of just awarding the grade that each student earns, would apparently have to adjust them so that academically weaker, historically underrepresented racial/ethnic students perform at the same level and receive the same grades as academically stronger students.
The good professor also took the university to task over how students of one race could prohibit students of other races from selecting their major:
Suppose there were a surge of interest in a high demand field such as computer science. Under the equity policy, it seems that some of those who want to study this field would be told that theyll have to choose another major because computer science already has enough students from their difference group.
As the famous Austrian economist F.A. Hayek said: There is all the difference in the world between treating people equally and attempting to make them equal.
Why do jokes about leftists come true?
This is from The Onion, right? RIGHT?????
At this rate, a Degree from the University of Phoenix will be more prestigious than one from UW-Madison.
Wouldn’t that be profiling?
Which is against the law!
Most diplomas don’t mean a whole lot anymore. This should just about do it for the need to have one. Another commie lib “Everybody Gets A Trophy” farce.
It all started as a joke, you are correct.

The good news about this is that the colleges that do not go along with this nonsense will prosper.
But that is a rather small beer considering the damage this type of thing does
You people in Wisconsin have proven you have a warped sense of humor.
I won’t make any more grassfed jokes that are udderly milked at this point in an attempt to butter you up.
But puhleeze tell me you wouldn’t hire somebody like this even in MADison.
Really. You....you...actually did hire him?
And this isn’t a misquote?
And that simply WON'T DO to this Communist POS. He is adamant that the entrance exams be dumbed down so that more blacks can pass them and then go in to ruin the scholarly atmosphere which made the school valuable in the first place. I have personally seen this over and over again. Once fabulous high schools, after an influx of ghetto blacks enters the school because they ruined their own neighborhood school and it was closed, have gone straight downhill until they were barely still better than the school the ghetto blacks ruined. It's enough to make you cry. Where can students who WANT to learn go, where the classes won't be disrupted by idiots who simply attend class to amuse themselves by ruining it for everyone else? Only private schools?
Satire? Please tell me this is a hoax. If not, we are doomed. No society can survive such idiocy as this.
My apologies for the previous post. I referred to the collective wisdom of the implementers of this policy in the male singular.
It’s obvious nobody in this cartel is concerned about being male or considers themselves singular.
You are all part of the Borg collective.
(Sounds Swedish doesn’t it.)
Sorry to have bothered you.
Go back to contemplating the sounds of your digestive system.
Can’t wait for taxes to be apportioned based on race!
I wish, but no matter how absurd the idea they take it and run with it.
You need to change your name to Thorazine.
Don’t give them any ideas!
Affirmative Action policy is so messed up. If you want to improve minority performance, you have to do it from the ground up, by improving primary school education. Why not build real improvement rather than just awarding someone extra points because of their skin color and calling it improvement. I know it will mean putting extra resources and tightening up standards in inner city schools, but the level of stupidity in this country is a national security concern, IMHO.
That ship has already sailed.
