Fall grades are due at noon. The modal view is that Gottfredson hasn’t shown enough participation to earn a grade. Otherwise it looks like a D+ average. As a freshman he gets another quarter to try and bring it up to a 2.0.
Bean’s grades look like something we’d expect from one of Lorraine Davis’s special athletic admits. Sorry Jim, but your best option now is a community college. Or maybe one of Yong Zhao’s online courses. 12/11/2012.
All kidding aside, the grade distribution for Bean, even accounting for the self-selected voter malcontent quotient, is really quite amazing. The sample size is decent (~120) and
from that, the observed fact that only 7% of respondents (presumably faculty) think that Bean is doing better than a C for his performance is devastating. Its therefore completely outrageous that he remains the provost because he has damn close to zero faculty support.
Nathan Tublitz has a motion in the Senate for the Jan meeting, calling on Gottfredson to make Bean explain his lack of performance to the faculty.
When Nathan drafted this in November, I told him I though it was a long shot he’d get a single vote. I think now it is sure to pass, and perhaps be quickly followed by a call for a vote of no confidence.
As the Dude said, “New shit has come to light, Dog”
yeah the poll results suggest No Confidence would be appropriate.
In fact, I challenge lurkers out there to come with a defensible reason why there should be any confidence.
