Maxine Waters has now provided proof that too much time in Washington not only degrades moral character, but mental capacity as well. Go here for more than you can stand about her lack of moral character. For her mental incapacity, however, the following should suffice.

She supports the Fair Academic Standards Act which that no student can get worse than a C-, regardless of how poorly he performs. This is choice. Hold on tight:

I am pleased that the Democratic leadership has taken a straightforward, no-holds-barred approach to expediting consideration of this legislation. And frankly, I am ashamed that it has taken so long to increase the minimum grade by so little.

The Fair Academic Standards Act is a clear indication of the philosophical difference between Democrats and Republicans. My party, the Democratic Party, has tried to raise the minimum grade for nearly 10 years because we believe in academic fairness.  Mr. Speaker, C- is totally unacceptable. No student can be academically successful with letter grades below C-. students deserve better, and students and their parents expect their representatives to assist them in their quest for decent grade point averages (GPAs).

This tells us a lot about the difference between those who will stand up for the least academically qualified and those who continue to bring unconscionable arguments to deny low-achieving students a mere minimum grade of C-.

Many States could not wait for Congress to act, and they have undertaken to increase their minimum grades already. In my own State of California, the minimum grade effective January 1 of this year has increased to B+, and we plan further increases in the future.

Mr. Speaker, millions of students will benefit from raising the minimum grade. The grade gap between the academically challenged students and their more academically talented peers is growing, and that’s fundamentally unfair. Too many students are earning low grades through no fault of their own, which causes them to suffer unnecessary hardships. When we pass this bill and outlaw letter grades below C- forever, we will all feel better about ourselves.

I’m not making this up. Really.  The prez is going to sign it into law on Tuesday.
