University Professor Will Allow Students To Choose Their Own Grades

A University of Georgia professor has enacted a 'stress reduction policy' aimed at allowing students to choose their own grades in hopes of soothing those who 'feel unduly stressed' by their earned ones.

Professor Dr Richard Watson is teaching two fall business courses and has introduced the policy because 'emotional reactions to stressful situation scan have profound consequences for all involved.'

In an emailed response, Dr. Watson who said that his syllabus haven't been solidified so the policy isn't currently listed.

'There is no such policy on the current web site,' he said in the email.

This is one of the reason these millennials feel like everything should be handed to them.. because IT IS. Come on. Everyone is not cut out to be a college student and if he/she is struggling that is what tutoring and professors have office hours for.

Cheating by taking an undeserved grade is a stressor in itself for those with a conscience.

U of GA - How to go from Bulldogs to Lapdogs, without incurring any stress! Guaranteed A in course.

Don't have to be Sherlock Holmes to see why Dr. Watson is now saying his policies are not finalized. Perhaps a call from the Dean along the lines of "Dr. Watson, come here please?"

He looks like a demon child molester!!cold black eyes! demonic grin! 99.9% of Professor are the biggest group of useful idiots and are not even intelligent enough to realize it. Losers on tenure because in the real world they would cower in fear from anything that looks like a real job.

Teaching "business" courses. Really? He has no business teaching business courses. Does he think he is going to send these kids out in the business world and then they are going to just tell the companies what they are going to pay them; that is, what they THINK they're worth? What the heck, if he want's to reduce the students stress, he should just drop any requirement to attend class, or do any required reading. Just let them sign up for his class, and then assign themselves a grade. He has been in academia too long. He needs a term limit, not tenure.
