Same things happen at universities, both private and public. In many private universities, "we can not fail people who pay 50K per year" so almost everyone gets an A or B. In public universities if you do not fail students, your life is simpler - they do not whine (they are used to being the last winner in high school), you get high evaluations, and administration does not breathe down your neck. Here in TX the brain-dead legislature are making it even more difficult to flunk students. This all is while quality of incoming students drops and the 1st year at university is spent teaching them (often unsuccessfully) things they should have learned at high school.|
