Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, March 29, 2019

In order to get into college, students are required to have certain GPA scores, SAT scores, ACT scores, scholarships and grants, etc. But, the playing field is unfair on so many levels: where you live, your family income, your family structure, your teachers, fellow students - all of these things can affect your future change of survival in the world.



Making it even.

In order to break the cycles the following proposal to be presented to all the high schools individually, and then, state-wide.

Students with GPA's over 3 will progressively lose 1-5 points. Those points will be redistributed to those students at the bottom.

If a school has insufficient students at the bottom, the points are then distributed state-wide to the poorest performing schools.

All scholarship and grants available will be given to the student's chosen school. That school will be required to collect all grants/scholarship monies attained through student contribution, and that money will be divided evenly to all students choosing the same school.

A full paid scholarship will now be properly distributed to those that, through no fault of their own, will benefit.

Schools of higher learning must accept students with lower GPA's due to the change because their GPA distribution is to the benefit of society. Therefore, the loss of points does not harm their future advancement in college.

New rules for college professors - to provide greater stability to new teachers in elementary, middle, and high school, colleges will be required to reduce college professor incomes and that money will be distributed to teachers in the lower school programs to encourage people to enter the teaching profession and to provide a better education to the students.

I missed part.

ACT and SAT scores will be reduced by a progressive scale of points, about 50-100 points of the top scorers, and added to the lowest scoring points of students. Higher education can use the pre-reduced scores when considering applicants, but must consider the post-adjusted scores of students in the lower percentiles.

Google racial bias in SAT and ACT scores.

hahaha, so some cancervatives equate GPA redistribution with wealth redistribution-you know, taxes.

One problem with this analogy is that GPA is a measurement of performance while wealth is byproduct of numerous factors-innovation, effort, resources, societal contributions, legacy, opportunity and many others.

For the analogy to hold weight, GPA would be based not only on grades, but your parents and ancestors grades, purchasing of grades, grades not being reduced for some due to errors, only a limited few could take the exam, limits on grades for poor people no matter their efforts, etc.

Just another example of righties not wanting to pay for what they receive.

"Google racial bias in SAT and ACT scores."

You'll never know until you try.

It's a good point. If you're going to redistribute the dividends of effort and talent, why limit it to wealth. Some people have higher GPAs than others. Some have more friends than others. Some have more lovers than others.

Maybe it's time for the government to redistribute those benefits as well.

That's right. When are we going to going to crack down on cognitive privilege?
In Vonnegut's "Harrison Bergeron" that is outlawed.

"In the year 2081, the 211th, 212th, and 213th amendments to the Constitution dictate that all Americans are fully equal and not allowed to be smarter, better-looking, or more physically able than anyone else. The Handicapper General's agents enforce the equality laws, forcing citizens to wear "handicaps": masks for those who are too beautiful, loud radios that disrupt thoughts inside the ears of intelligent people, and heavy weights for the strong or athletic."

Sounds like the next frontier in SJW ideology.

Equality is a pretty good justification for enslavement.

That's what they said when they created the "projects".....

This would probably only seem totally unfair if you came from a two parent middle class white family with a nice steady income. As I did too but through experience and education I understand that I did have many priveleges and benefits for my life others did not have. If that makes me overly liberal, I don't care. I would much rather err on the side of fairness for minorities, the poor, etc. than to err on the other side of the controversy. I guess I have just always been confident in my own abilities to succeed even if others received slight preferences or advantages I didn't qualify for. Guess some of the rest of you don't feel very confident in your own abilities.
