(NATIONWIDE) – While a 10% hit rate is considered success among top VC firms, and 25% an average hit rate among baseball players, current oppressive grading systems demand students correctly answer 80% of test questions correctly to be considered average, university students say.
“The disparity in how we are judged is oppressive and ludicrous,” student body president of Harvard, John Kim, said in a statement. “We just want to be judged by the same standards as the highest paid professionals in our society, that’s all.”
University administrators from the Ivy Leagues to state school systems are reportedly taking various proposals under consideration.
Chief among them are a proposal that would instead assign active students to fundraising activities, replacing the potential loss of NCAA revenues.
