The Rosenberg Revolution

Have you guys seen this video?

It’s a video from an ex-part time professor at Rutgers talking about how Rutgers’ departments force professors to give only 20% of students As and 20% of students Cs and Ds and such. Does anyone know if this is actually true? Being a freshmen I can’t speak from experience on the matter but if this is true this is absolutely appalling. So if someone works their ass all semester they might be given a worse grade than they deserve just because of statistics? What?! As Dr. Rosenberg says in the video this is crazy and extremely detrimental to students’ futures; especially in such a large university. If this is true this has to be the absolute biggest RUScew of them all. If anyone knows more about the validity of this man’s claims I would love to hear about it.

I checked out Dr. Rosenberg on ratemyprofessor.com and it seems that Rutgers students have nothing but good things to say about the man.

And wow, he’s even got his own website and youtube page (and just in case you were wondering, here’s his wikipedia page).

    Ugh, stuff like this bothers me a lot. There’s also the teachers that say things like “I only hand out 3 A’s a semester” or “I don’t hand out A+’s because I don’t believe there’s such thing as a perfect paper”.
    I mean, yeah that sounds good on paper, but what happens when students are actually learning well enough to get all A’s?
    My friend from another school was talking about how in one of his engineering classes his average ended up being a 93, but because so many kids had A’s, the teacher implemented a curve that kicked most of the kids in the low 90’s average to a solid B.
    That’s just stupid.
