Grade Inflation Called a Crisis

Thomas Lindsay says grade inflation undermines the morale necessary for the learning required to compete in the workforce.  As director of the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Center for Higher Education, Lindsey references a study that shows 15 percent of all grades were A’s in the 1960’s and have nearly tripled to 43 percent now.  He quotes Texas A&M’s Valen Johnson reporting that students manipulate their GPA’s through class and professor selection.  Professors reap benefits of easier grading from better student evaluations leading to tenure, promotion and salary increases.
