US Universities Have a Grading Problem

When it comes to entitlement, American college students get high marks. At universities around the country students expect better grades for less work.

Growing increasingly concerned with students' increasing expectations, researches at the University of California, Irvine decided to study student attitudes. According to the New York Times the report found that a third of students surveyed said that they expected B’s just for attending lectures, and 40 percent said they deserved a B for completing the required reading.

The study hypothesized that parental pressure, competition, and achievement anxiety (prescription drug sure to follow shortly) has caused students to see an A as the default grade, rather than a C.

High report-card expectations aren't a bad thing, but let's hope actually learning something is part of the goal too.
