* The Kentucky Kernel

Students Get Graded,
Why Not Instructors?

Regardless of what can be said
of a college or university, there is one

thing that should be evident. They
are businesses and as businesses they
should strive to achieve a degree of
efliciency and success.
Employes of a business must produce or else. There should be no difference with those employed by a
university or college.
It is easy to see that many students do not make th? grade. One
only has to check the "purged" freshmen each year to know this. Yet, it
seems that once one has been a student long enough to have received
a master's or doctor's degree he enters a sanction that makes him, in
most places, safe from criticism.
If the University, this or any other,
is to function smoothly and efficiently,
there obviously should be a way to
theck those employed. In many instances a professor or instructor is
hired, yet may in actuality be unsuitable at the time. In other cases, either
through senility or a false sense of
being "above" the level of a student,
a professor may be unsuitable. A

professor may be highly respected and
learned, but the classroom often
proves a different matter.
It is almost ridiculous to throw
students out and still keep professors
who are unsatisfactory. Of course
once a professor is hired, in very few
instances does the University know of
his procedures in the classroom.
The Kernel believes a system
could be worked out for the students
to evaluate instructors at the end of
the semesters. Of course, some students would probably turn in crackpot opinions but others would be sincere and a great deal could be learned
from this. It would not take five minutes out of the entire semester and
could prove worthwhile. Forms could
be given to each instructor and taken
up by a person whose name comes
first on the roll and the report would
then be unseen by the professor.
Professors may not agree with
this plan, but at least they would
know if they were meant to be teachers or misplacements like many of
the students who have gone through
their classrooms.

Would Discourage
Student Initiative


Many colleges and universities
throughout the country are initiating
the pass-fai- l
system. They are introducing to their respective institutions
of higher learning a system in which
grades do not count; a system in which
a student either passes or fails a subject. And they are initiating a system
that will lower the caliber of students
that they graduate.
Under the pass-fai- l
system a student does not receive an "A" to indicate that he has performed with

It Is 'Degree Or Bust, Isn 't It?

Why are you in college? To get
from home? Because your parents sent you? To avoid going out into
the cold, cruel world?
Of course not. You're here to get
an education. You want to learn. And
you want a degree, of course.
Why? Because you have to have a
degree to get ahead these days. That's
what everyone says. If you don't have
at least one degree and the more,
the merrier you really never will
amount to anything at all. No one
ever goes anywhere in life without
that little piece of paper; everybody
knows that.
After all, it isn't really what you
know that counts. So you get your degree in interior design and you want
to go into elementary-schoo- l
fine. As long as you have a degree.
Of course a degree is important.
Very important. We all know that.
If we didn't think so.we wouldn't be
here. Oh, there are a few of us who

come to college for the sake of pure
knowledge alone, but when you come
right down to it, most of us are pretty
hep on that degree, and on what's in
it for us.
So here we are in college, learning as hard as we can. Grades are the
big thing today. Of course, just having
a degree in itself is nice, but if you
really are planning on going places in
life, what you really must have are
those little phrases, "with distinction," or, better yet, "with high distinction" as decoration for your diploma.
And so we're under constant pressure, day in and day out, from family,
friends, and professors, to make that
grade. Of course, to be perfectly iair,
there are other things to growing up
besides graduating. But what's the
rush? You have all the rest of your life
for those.
The main thing now is to stop
wasting money and get through

school. You're pretty lucky, you know,
that you even have the chance to try.
So the least you could do would be to
make straight A's you know, to make
the investment worthwhile.
And too, if you don't succeed in
college, what earthly chance have you
of ever making it in the big, bad
world outside? You can't learn common sense in school, so it must not
be important. After all, if it were,
they'd give a course in it. There are
courses in everything else that's of any
consequence and even in a few things
that aren't.
So we really should stop and examine our goals. Be realistic if you're
here for any other reason than to get
a degree, then you're either fooling
yourself, or you're not mature enough
to realize what degrees mean to "The
People Who Count." Set your course
straight degree or bust. Because
nothing else is important. At least,
that's what we keep hearing.

most of her day In Jackson and
Breathitt County, visiting a

man, joining 24 school children
for a hot lunch In a
schoolhouse and dedicating

County High School.
Her day began early; she arrived at Lexington's Blue Grass
Field at 8:05 a.m. where she was

excellence. Nor does a student receive
a "D" to show that he passed the
course with the minimum effort or
accomplishment. Instead, students in
both categories find themselves in the
same classification.
Perhaps the "A" students may at
thrive on knowing that they
learned more and worked harder than
the "D" students. For a while they
may continue to do superior work for
personal satisfaction. But eventually
they will become resentful; they will
search for a reason to do a good job
when others are rewarded equally
as well by doing a half-wajob.
There is also much in reward.

When initiative is gone at a university, students will gradually cease
to produce everything except the minimum effort. Many students who
might have been creative under a
competitive system are not creative
under a pass-fai- l
system. For an individual to produce, more than ability
is necessary. Drive and ambition must
also be present. There can be no drive
or ambition when what is desired is
not available. There can be no drive
to do "A" work when "A's" are not

are doing so; and many of those who
have not been producing well are trying harder.

throughout the nation," she said,
"yet circumstances have forced
