Listening to the Radio they had a debate going on. Apparently some black private colleges are passing black kids if they try. In your Freshman year if you go to class regular hand in all homework, no matter what you do on your test you pass. 60% of your grade is based on attempt then in your Sophmore years its 50%. Then I beleive its done.

They had a Balck Professor who refused to grade like this and was fired. He stated he had a student who never missed class turned in all homework had 5 test during the semester and never got higher than a 40% on any of them, and he had to pass him.

These are all open enrollment colleges.

I will attempt to find a link.

"The Blacker The College, The Better The Knowledge"


Or at least that is what I saw on a T-Shirt being worn by some black girl when I was in college. About 13 years later, needless to say I haven't forgotten that.

Maybe it should have read "You might be dumber than a bag of hammers but give an effort and we will pass you anyway..."

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with a girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

Yeah - I'd hate to think Ferris might be really sick like that.

How is this any different than regular public schooling?

I mean, other than you have to try part...

No scholarships for me. I only needed 1 credit my senior year, if I could do it again I would have taken gov't and econ in the 1 semester and been done.

In a stunning upset, I didn't recieve the "senioritis of the year" award, but I did manage to change the districts attendance policy.

The interesting thing about this policy is that if you're really smart and you do well on the tests without trying, they should fail you.
