The Harry Potter fandom right now
the rest of the world
it’s September 1st and again I’m not on the Hogwarts Express.
Friendly reminder that anyone born between 1985-1998 didn’t get their hogwarts letter because Voldemort’s ministry wiped out the record of muggleborns
One of the many things Bill Nye taught me
The difference between milk snakes and coral snakes is a crucial key to not dying. Coral snakes are extremely dangerous, and despite the low bite ratio, they can and will bite you if you’re not careful. Milk snakes are totally okay and chill. So remember, everyone.
If red touches yellow, you’re a dead fellow
But if red touches black, you’re okay jack
I read this as milk shakes and was very confused
What if colleges only made you pay the percentage of tuition that you failed, so if you got an average of 86 for the year you’d only have to pay 14% of the tuition, but if you got a 94 then it’d only be 6%. That way we’d be rewarding the success and even if you flunked the semester, you still wouldn’t have to pay for ALL of the tuition
You are the future.
Please run for president
that would actually be amazing
I don’t know though? Because like college and university is supposed to be about ~~expanding your horizons~~ and having a system like this would encourage people to choose only the classes they’re already good at because they’d save money. It also ignores the fact that a lot of college classes hinge on like two tests and a project, and if you’re not a good test-taker this means that you’re screwed over for something that isn’t necessarily a good measure of “success”.
Like, why don’t we just think of ways that we can structurally reduce college tuition and make it more accessible for people rather than putting the pressure on the students (who already feel enough pressure as it is) to take it upon themselves to reduce their own tuition.
That’s a good point. Perhaps if there was some sort of system in which students were supposed to take classes that were out of their comfort zones, it would work better. Like, maybe one or two of their classes had to be completely new and difficult, but they would be exempt from this grade/tuition rule…
