Professor Wants to Abolish Grades for Being Capitalist
Capitalism features a standard of value: money, which represents property. Education has a standard of value too: grades, which represent mastery of course material. You cannot achieve absolute equality so long as there are standards of value. Therefore, to impose socialist utopia we must abolish grades. So says Richard Wolff, an economics professor at the New School in NYC:
According to Wolff, the practice of grading is one that has served to prop up America’s capitalist economic system and its “major failures,” including “socially divisive inequalities” and the creation of “boring, dangerous, and/or mind-numbing” jobs. He asserts that capitalism’s survival can be attributed only to flawed human ideologies, one of which is the concept of “meritocracy.” Grades, he says, are one of many “mechanisms” used to “anchor” the concept of meritocracy in society.
In utopia, there won’t be any boring jobs, because if you get bored at your job you can just stay home and get paid to do whatever you please. That’s why Democrats’ Green New Deal includes “economic security” for those “unwilling to work.”
Grades also undermine the progressive attack on reality, according to which there is no objective truth.
The professor argues that grades do a disservice to education because to administer a grade is effectively “insisting on one answer as right and alternatives as wrong.”
Wolff is correct to link grades with capitalism. See how the concept of being allowed to keep the grades you worked hard for undermines socialist ideology:
