In the latest column from Walter Williams, the issue of grade inflation is brought up. Williams argues that it is prevalent in colleges and universities and refers to it as “academic fraud.” He concludes:
The bottom line: To approach truth in grading, parents and employers should lower the average student’s grade by one letter, and interpret a C grade as an F.
I guess the bottom line for me is that all of my A grades should have been B’s. No wonder I’m having a harder time finding a decent job than I expected.
