Now, this is something I've seen coming for a while.

Some twit's suing her university for a C+ grade that she earned, because her instructors cheated her out of her chosen career--or, at least, that's the way she sees it. 

The instructors say that she was given a zero, with an opportunity to make up the assignment that she didn't take. 

God, I hope the judge laughs her out of court.  If he doesn't...higher education as a whole is fucked.

  1. I hope so too. To add to it she was there for free as her Father is a professor there. Sigh......

    1. Yeah, I caught that. I was more worried about the implications for my profession than the further example of entitlement attitude. I have given C's--and lower--to many, many speshul snowflakes. My class may not be critical to any given major, but a lot have been insulted to get such a bad grade in a core class, and I think one actually blew up about getting me fired (I quit listening after they explained that their C papers were perfect without revision).

  2. If she wins in court, swear to God, I am resigning and going back to school to be a mechanic. Because higher education will be DONE in this country. (I already feel like I'm on a sinking ship a lot of the time. I stick around because I get good students who are genuinely trying to work towards a better life, but there's gonna come a tipping point where they are outweighed by the jerks with giant senses of entitlement)

    1. Agreed. I'm sure I can find something I can do from home.
