EXCLUSIVE: The Antifa Professor Who Celebrates Dead Cops Has A COMMUNIST Grading Policy
The taxpayer-funded economics professor who laughed about dead cops and openly supports militant anti-police groups has a communal grading policy which awards grades to individual students based on the work and participation of other students.
The professor, Mike Isaacson, taught until recently at the City University of New York’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice. He is one of the creators of Smash Racism D.C., an antifa organization in Washington.
Isaacson’s official grading curve policy in a course titled “Introduction to Economics and Global Capitalism” explains that he gives individual students grades based on “class effort.”
“Few academic or professional endeavors are the result of individuals acting alone,” Isaacson’s grading curve policy states. “All graded assignments will receive grades reflective of not only individual efforts, but also class effort.”
The “pursuit of knowledge is a collective pursuit,” the antifa professor says.
As such, students in Isaacson’s class receive grades which are “normalized” and “then redistributed across a normal distribution with a mean of the class median grade and standard deviation equal to one-fourth of the interquartile range.”
