Grading is easy at education schools, asserts PDQ Stories, the new blog for the National Council on Teacher Quality. The post includes a graph comparing grade point averages at a large state university. Education majors are in blue. The other lines represent math, science, humanities and social studies departments.
According to a forthcoming paper by Cory Koedel of the University of Missouri, more than a dozen education departments at major universities have a similar grading pattern.
