Have you ever accepted, been given, or retaliated against for a view by a professor that resulted in a lower grade? Example: Many years ago, a student came to me with syllabus in hand to show how the student had met every requirement for an "A" but had been given a "C." When inquiring, it was discovered that the student had the audacity to disagree with the professor's view(s); because the student refused to parrot the professor's view, he was given a final grade of a "C". The professor agreed to raise the final grade to a "B" as a compromise. The student had the character to move on with their life, and presently is well respected in the field. How about you. Have you experience such conduct from "professionals" who judge unrighteously?
