Friday Link Love: Grade Inflation in Colleges

Just one today---and not food related! Linked from Andrew Sullivan's blog: From C's to A's Created by: Masters Degree


I entered college more than 20 years ago but the trend was supposedly underway. There were still more B's given than A's at that point.

I am naturally skeptical of "ain't it awful" and "get off my lawn" arguments... though I admit some of these stats are worth some analysis. Others seem pretty weak (college presidents' perceptions of preparedness may be accurate, but at the very least, they need to be taken with a grain of salt).
