#DiversityIsOurStrength Report: University of Wisconsin-Madison mulls ‘diversity-based grading’

UW-Madison’s diversity guidelines state that if a course, major or program is in high demand, special status must be given to ensure the make-up of the class (and thus those taking the major) is racially and ethnically diverse with “just the right percentages.”

Meaning, it would be justifiable for a placement in hard-to-get-in classes and prerequisites for specific majors be awarded to students based sole on their race.

But it may be worse than that: Especially shocking is the language about “equity” in the distribution of grades…
