As the semester ended in December, students in Frölich’s “Intermediate Programming”, “Computer Science Fundamentals,” and “Introduction to Programming for Scientists and Engineers” classes decided to test the limits of the policy, and collectively planned to boycott the final. Because they all did, a zero was the highest score in each of the three classes, which, by the rules of Frölich’s curve, meant every student received an A.

Kinda like what the students of the dumbed-down nanny state do all of the time. But the gubmint prof's never change the rules of the game else they would be out of a job. And there intentions are good.

You want to look at this as a liberal implementation?

THink of the NY Times story?

Professor finds a way to bring each student to an A on their final!

This would be the new template for ALL NCLB grading!
