You WON'T BELIEVE What College Students Are Protesting Now! Or Maybe You WILL

Protesting college students making ridiculous demands is not a new thing, but now they're taking it to the next level by demanding better grades for taking time away from classwork to protest.


According to The Week, students at Oberlin College in Ohio also want midterm exams abolished and replaced with a conversation with their professors.

Students blame their slipping grades on heavy and demanding activist work on and off campus, including a time-consuming commutes to Tamir Rice police shooting protests. And students believe that because they're having to pay for an education, the college should allow them to skip classes and assignments without negative consequences.

Student Zakiya Acey complained, "You know, we're paying for a service. We're paying for our attendance here. We need to be able to get what we need in a way that we can actually consume it."

He also wants leeway for dealing with personal problems and the societal unfairness, saying, "Because I'm dealing with having been arrested on campus, or having to deal with the things that my family are going through because of larger systems — having to deal with all of that, I can't produce the work that they want me to do. But I understand the material, and I can give it to you in different ways."

Apparently the purpose of higher education is much different than I thought.
