Gunboat: I'm not surprised to see slut shaming alive and well.


As is every other sort of shaming.  Pick a miscreant and start shoveling.  Frankly, I don't care is she banged the entire varsity.  But at the end of the day, so what?  If she actually got sh*tty grades for showing everybody her vajoohoo for money, the prof should apologize and retract.  Because it has nothing to do with her grades.  What he thinks of her morality is HIS business.  And should be kept away from his job.

Krymson Tyde: I would have went to see her dance. I know that's what I would've done when I was teaching had I had found out one of my female students was a stripper.


I see at least two reasons why you're no longer a teacher... and were probably never a good one.

Fark_Guy_Rob: Eh - lots of Professors are biased.  Lots of them don't realize it.  Grading is not objective.  And it's 1000x more true in the 'softer' fields (like history) where your more likely to be writing a paper about a topic in general than solving a mathematical equation that can either be correct or incorrect.

Studies have shown that Professors grade differently based on the name on the paper, the formatting/font of the paper, and the handwriting (when it isn't typed).

People *can't* remove their biases.  Most aren't even aware of it.  If the educational system cared (hint:  They don't) the University would have a policy where all of the grading is rotated among Professors and all of the assignments are submitted in a predefined format, with an anonymous 'student identifier'.


I remember a conversation between two teachers that would sit together grading essays...


Teacher 1: New essays to correct, here's one, What do you think?
Teacher 2: Whoa-ho. Very nice. Look at that.
Teacher 1: Picked them up from the class yesterday.
Teacher 2: Good coloring.
Teacher 1: That's bone. And the lettering is something called Silian Rail.
Teacher 2: It's very cool, but that's nothing. Look at this.
Teacher 2: That is really nice.
Teacher 2: Eggshell with Romalian type. What do you think?
Teacher 1: Nice.
Teacher 2: Jesus. That is really super. How'd a nitwit like you get so tasteful?
Teacher 1: [Thinking] I can't believe that you prefers this student's essay to this one.
Teacher 2: But wait. You ain't seen nothin' yet. Raised lettering, pale nimbus. White.
Teacher 1: Impressive. Very nice.
Teacher 2: Hmm.
Teacher 1: Let's see this student's essay.
Teacher 1: [Thinking] Look at that subtle off-white coloring. The tasteful thickness of it. Oh, my God. It even has a watermark.
Teacher 2: Is something wrong, Teacher 1? You're sweating.

If she doesn't like it she can simply switch schools. Free market and she's the consumer and all that. Invisible hand seems the obvious solution to peccadilloes like this.
