Another Bogus Fox News Report: The University Of Wisconsin Will 'Adjust The Grades' Of Minority Students
In yet another case of Todd Starnes being a terrible reporter, the Fox News commentator said in a radio bulletin yesterday that the University of Wisconsin-Madison is going to begin factoring a student’s race into its grading system.
Starnes misrepresents the language, which dates back to 2009, of a stated university goal to see an improvement in the grades of students from “historically underrepresented racial-ethnic groups,” mangling it to suggest that the university would actually require professors to begin “adjusting the grades” of students based on their race. In other words, the school sees higher grades “as an outcome” of fostering diversity in academics, not as a mandated result.
“At face value, the University of Wisconsin seems to be sacrificing academic education on the altar of academic diversity. Whatever happened to giving kids the grades they deserved?” Starnes asked.
Good question! Maybe Starnes could use some of the journalism skills he learned in school to do some basic research — like a Google search — to see if his reporting holds water.
