LSU throws a curve-ball at professor who doesn’t curve

An LSU professor who doesn’t curve even if everyone fails and gives ten answer choices (‘a’ through ‘j’!) on a multiple-choice exam because she doesn’t believe students should benefit from guessing?  In an age of grade inflation, 90 percent of students failing an exam doesn’t seem possible.  Apparently, administrators at LSU don’t think it’s fair either.  Professor Dominique Homberger was removed from teaching the course with little warning after the administration received a large number of student complaints. But do students have too much say nowadays in their grades?  Is a degree as deserved as it used to be?
