Like the Affirmative Action Bake Sales, I can see the students involved in this completely missing the point.
They worked hard for that good GPA. I see that. I understand that they wouldn't want points taken from their good GPA and handed to those that don't work as hard.
I work hard for my paychecks, and I resent every dollar taken from my family to be given to those who don't work. I hate--hate--that such a huge part of the federal budget (54%) goes toward things outside the Constitutional responsibilities of the federal government.
I would be willing to bet that most of the students approached about redistributing GPA points to the less fortunate won't see the parallels.
