“it is blatantly negligent to the severity of these events and their influence over one’s mental health and academic performance.”
This seems like a bit of stretch, doesn’t it?
The College Fix reports:
UC San Diego students demand changes to finals grading due to American police brutality
Students at the University of California San Diego are calling upon school officials to alter finals grading policy due to “recent acts of police brutality” and associated protests.
The demands, begun on social media and a form email to send to UCSD personnel, call for a “modification in the grading and/or the final exams,” universal pass/fail or universal pass being the favorites.
“Beyond it being inherently insensitive to force students, especially our black students, to hold the burden of maintaining their academic readiness in these horrific times,” the sample letter reads, “it is blatantly negligent to the severity of these events and their influence over one’s mental health and academic performance.”
Sooo can someone start a petition or something for Black students at @UCSanDiego (and other schools)? I don’t see how they expect us to focus and successfully study when Black people AT THIS VERY MOMENT are being harassed, murdered, ETC. all while mourning!!?
