  1. So I get a 4.0/4.0 and another guy in my year gets a 2.5/4.0 and recruiters are allowed to know this? This is capitalism? It sure is because I will earn more for my employer than the other guy. Maybe not me personally, but on average. And that is the way capitalism out-produces socialism. And that is why people in capitalist countries enjoy on average better health and welfare.
    “The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.”

  2. If I recall correctly, Richard Wolff is a rabid, full-fledged, self-described Marxist – and proud of it – who thinks it's "obscene" that investors can earn money off of the companies in which they invest. He rails against venture capitalism, not crony capitalism.

  3. What's the point of inviting 4 guests that agree with you, and not inviting someone who argues the other side? There are many psychologists and educators who have argued that the grading system demotivates students and that it should be removed. People are driven by self satisfaction and the desire to achieve something. Grades can counter interact and disrupt peoples incentives. Instead of working for self satisfaction and improvement, kids are made to work for external validation and award, when the award is not there anymore, their incentive is gone.

  4. This professor obviously had poor grades and was very angry about it and now he has a mental health issue about it all . Grading is meritocracy you fool !

  5. Um, okay. Meanwhile, the truly smart people will invest in businesses, instead of school debt, and become successful. You can greet them while you're taking their order.

  6. Grades gives marks when hard learners and educated earns merit.

    The lazy and illiterate ends using back doors, corruption and breaching the walls.

    Merit is the future. Get rid of illegal entry and breach which increase crime rate, drugs, gangs, trafficking, prostitution.

  7. This professor is an absolute idiot if you do away the grades how you going to decide where you're progressing or not

  8. That is right. I am sure employers will buy into that.make it a little harder for these spoiled millennials to get a job much lead a life.

  9. We must change the way our kids are being taught its crasy its unamerican and its comunism fire those lefty teachers 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  10. Reduce every public teacher's salary to the minimum wage of $15.00 That's all they're worth! They have failed their employer the American taxpayer….NOT THEIR TEACHER"S UNION! DO your job and shut up! Magnet and charter schools are the way to go! Eliminate tenures!

  11. How does one get into college without grades. An idea is those student that don’t want grades don’t go to college. How does one get out of sixth grade or high school without grades.

  12. I agree get rid of grades. Then get rid of credit scores. Don't stop there get rid of requirements or qualifications. I wanna be a brain surgeon and I shouldn't be held back by … qualifications….

    This is a ploy by the dumb bc they are dumb and they don't want smarter people to have what they dont have.

  13. No grades? Why not just shut down all schools. Why fool with any of it. Democrats and all there followers are mental so why fool with any education.

  14. Hey, professor. So, you would love to hand over your wallet, the most capitalistic thing you have, to me, right?

  15. Then it’s time to get rid of that professor and tenure be damned. They shouldn’t be spewing socialism to students.

  16. Kids are lazy and will do only what they need too get by with the exception of a few. It will cause a dumbing down of our next generations.

  17. So this professor wants to do away with grades and hates Capitalism? This is more Common core at a University level. The continual dumbing down of America. The Right needs to start becoming more aggressive in their stance against the Left's hungry determination to create America into just another Socialist EU satellite. Time to bring Nationalist Patriotism back to American society and chase off the cancer that is killing this great nation.

  18. Hampshire College, look it up if y'all care. "Great school." Didn't grade for years. Churned out official geniuses. Just like "Alternative High School" programs of the 1970s, which did not grade.

  19. Yeah participation awards and no incentive to do better, typical loser leftist ideology, communist loving turd burglar shouldn’t be allowed to teach anything.

  20. Well, America is based on Capitalism and that is how America became the most powerful and greatest country in the world. If the prof does not like capitalism he can move to Russia, Cuba or Venezuela.

  21. And the 'Professor's' tenure? Perhaps that form of capitalism has to go too. Anyway I think its just a bit of Lefty trigger digging…no one is going to hire someone who doesn't have requirements unless those requirements are not needed..welcome to the heavy lifting industries collage grad..lol

  22. This has got to be the dumbest thing I have ever heard!!! and if numbers (merits) are bad there go's your pay wage!!

  23. The banana slugs at UC Santa Cruz have had to put up with no greats for years then the school changed their system to grade and merit based. The University is doing much better. Why would you bother studying for something if you had nothing to show for it?

  24. I agree that success is a poor measure of success. The Detroit Lions are the opposite of a meritocracy, and they’re doing ok. Not on any actual level, but something.

  25. I don’t blame them for wanting to get rid of grades. If my students were failing I wouldn’t want anybody to know it either.

  26. Give kids FREE schooling, Don't hold them accountable if they don't really apply themselves, give them SAFE spaces if they are upset.
    They are then prepared for ZIP and expect to begin a job with an exorbitant salary. Is the professor smarter than a 5th grader?

  27. Yeah, and getting rid of grades is Communism in action. What's the "professor's" point? They tried this at Hampshire College in Amherst, MA (East Coast San Fran), and guess what? College is shutting down, huge failure. That and the fact that each student just made up whatever major they wanted. Stupid friggin hippies.

  28. WTF how's did this professor become a teacher with thinking like this, he needs to be removed from spreading lies to kids.

  29. We already doing that. Many teachers have told me 'they don't give grades anymore'. No wonder we looked stupid in these days. Forget 'capitalism'.

  30. I never LIKED our modern Indoctrination System!Never made the Highest marks but couldn't wait to get home and READ on my OWN!Tackling Conan Doyle at 12,or "Crime and Punishment" or "Les Miserables" wasn't Easy but I LOVED IT!The,"Foundation"Trilogy was MY OWN Foundation!And the,"Animal Farm" helped ME see the PIGs in our Current Society!

  31. I'm at the point of not commenting anymore when you watch people like this born idiots you realize this world is lost…..

  32. The schools teachers are not making any good teachings for anyone education rather?…..America is full of garbage criminals activists and can’t see and read their own actions?……

  33. Public schools are Socialism… Systematized, industrialized, education is Socialism… The origins of our education system is training Industrial factories. Socialism doesn't get rid of those factories… Socialism makes all factories owned by a giant state monopoly.

  34. Pure encroachment of communism by the enemies of our education
    in fact they call it "forced retardation" and no israel is not our friend, anything created by the Rothschilds and the British Royal Family is never good for the common people… I will end this comment here…

  35. GET RID OF THIS PROFESSOR & DEFUND THE SOCIALISTS!!! DEFUND THIS LOT & GET THE COMPETITION IN SCHOOLS IN LIFE & EDUCATION BACK!!

  36. N.y.professor doesn't know how to teach…that's is why he doesn't want grading system.all students under him are stupids!!!

  37. What a brilliant idea, get rid of grading students. Why not get rid of education all together? That way we can have more stupid, more lazy, and more unmotivated people milling about dragging down society. What a joke.

  38. Breaking news socialists want to get rid of achievement. 🙄
    This is proof of mental illness in higher education.
    This professor is actually arguing against his own job. Take it to the next level. Why go to this professor's class at all?
    Why get a college degree when there is free educational material online? If the quality of ones effort and achievements doesn't matter what does? Pure stupidity.

  39. Once again a fine example of the Loony left not all people are equal unfortunate unfortunately that is reality but if you believe in a Democrat you believe that all people on the same no more no less but in reality you did knowing the truth the truth is there are some that will achieve the sun that will not under somewhere just in the middle there but those who can he can benefit those who do not achieve by creating the wealth of their nation and creating jobs yes this is called capitalism and yes there will be losers but quite often as less losers and winners with communism there are a few winners and many millions that have nothing

  40. Lunatics, college professor are failed entenperures. That couldn't make it in the private sector. So they hate everyone that has made it in the private sector. Because you have a college degree doesn't make you smart. Or a better work. College degree gives you a leg up on the job sector and that's it.

  41. China and Russia stand behind the professor's asinine, stupidity 100%! Like our kids haven't become stupid enough.

  42. It seems most teachers and professors are turning socialist on us. There is no place in a democratic republic for socialism. Period!

  43. Be sure to go to doctors that didn't get graded and see how confident in them they are. Know what they call a medical student who graduates at the bottom of their class? Doctor.

  44. When I heard this is sourced in the fat-headed moron Richard Wolff it explained all the insanity. Why are we giving that guy ANY attention to his severe mental disorders?

  45. Sure, why BOTHER even doing the work? Who cares? If gardes no longer matter, then why bother even giving any effort at all? We should just forget doing the homework, or learning anything. Lets just raise a bunch of IDIOTS . Think about how STUPID our next generation of kids will be like. They will have no incentive to do anything any more. Funny because the Japanese kids are smarter than our kids because they WORK HARDER for good GRADES. What is happening to this country? This professor needs to resign his position right now. Why not, he has nothing to lose right?

  46. I went to a top 40 university and was an average student. I got A’s when I tried hard, B’s and C’s when I didn’t. I consider myself typical, so, if there are no grades, who is going to try hard and really learn? My guess, this professor is just trying to get out of having to grade tests and papers or doesn’t have the stones to tell some doe-eyed student that they failed.

  47. Student without grades will be at a serious disadvantage against someone like me, for instance, who received good grades..

  48. So the professor shouldn’t get a paycheck , because they are trading their time for money and that is capitalism.

  49. And this guy actually got hired ? Sounds like AOC was stdent of his , Like so many , they aren't teaching ,just indoctrinating . Norm/Herd

  50. WELL SO NO GRADES, NO MERITS YOU GET CONSOLATION TROPHY IF YOU ARE LOOSER THEN WHY HAVE SCHOOLS AND UNIVERSITIES. SHUT THEM DOWN. ALL EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS ARE CAPITALIST BILLIONS OF DOLLARS ARE CONSUMED AND EARNED. IT IS BUSINESS BUSINESS ID CAPITALIZING. SO SHUT DOWN THE SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES THEY ARE WORTHLESS ANYWAY. MINTING OUT LARGE PERCENTAGE OF SNOWFLAKES, IDIOTA, BRAINLESS MINDLESS GENERATIONS ARE BEING PRODUCED.

  51. Grades were terrible while I was in school and I didn't value them. Grades are great. The problem is kids these days are unhealthy, distracted, and not interested in doing well in school. To be fair, there are many opportunities for them elsewhere.

  52. let's let the Engineers that should have received an F supervise the next bridge this prof is going to go over.
