This article was in the Herald Journal today. Most everyone I talk to agrees that grade inflation is a problem. It is so difficult to battle though, because to work against it one needs to have everyone else (at least everyone else in your department and perhaps everyone else at the university and perhaps everyone else at every university) working against it with you. Otherwise you just look like a jerk who is being unfair.
Associate Vice Provost and Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Utah State University. I teach across the curriculum, but am most interested in continental philosophy, ancient and medieval philosophy as well as Catholic thought, all of which might be summed up as an interest in the ressourcement tradition (returning in order to make progress). I also enjoy spending time thinking about liberal education and its ends.
