    Default students want to abolish midterms and any grades below C

    Oberlin students want to abolish midterms and any grades below C

    Oberlin students want to abolish midterms and any grades below C

    Students at Oberlin College are asking the school to put academics on the back burner so they can better turn their attention to activism. More than 1,300 students at the Midwestern liberal arts college have now signed a petition asking that the college get rid of any grade below a C for the semester, and some students are requesting alternatives to the standard written midterm examination, such as a conversation with a professor in lieu of an essay.


    The students say that between their activism work and their heavy course load, finding success within the usual grading parameters is increasingly difficult. "A lot of us worked alongside community members in Cleveland who were protesting," Megan Bautista, a co-liaison in Oberlin's student government, said, referring to the protests surrounding the shooting death of 12-year-old Tamir Rice by a police officer in 2014. "But we needed to organize on campus as well — it wasn't sustainable to keep driving 40 minutes away. A lot of us started suffering academically."

    The past generation was any better ?
    One look at G.W. Bush's past is enough for any intelligent person to know the rulers are not always people on a pedestal.
    Booze, drugs, arrests and a stellar military record, not to mention missing records. Yet I am sure you cheered him on ...

    Protests and activism aren't anything new. Some may be misguided, but it is our freedom that allows us to speak and challenge the status quo.

    Maybe we should make exclusions to our freedom that don't align with your agenda? Whatever you say Adolf.......

    It's a shame your world is so dark, filled with despair and propaganda.
    Do you really think that has any chance of moving towards fruition ?
    I don't.

    And since you asked, I got the past generation ( G.W. Bush ) from your comment on the future generation.
    Not able to understand the coloration ?
