An economics professor at Yale University has decided to make his students’ midterm exam “optional.”
The decision was made to accommodate his special little snowflakes who are distraught over the election of Donald Trump.
A Yale University professor has given his students a reprieve as a result of the controversial US election and made an exam optional for those who are ‘in shock’ over Donald Trump being named as the President-elect.
In it the professor explained that ‘many’ students had asked to postpone the exam because they were in ‘fear. rightly or wrongly, for their own families’.
However, the professor – who is in charge of the Econ 115 ‘introductory microeconomics’ unit – said that it was too difficult to postpone the exam. ‘Therefore, I am making the exam optional,’ the email said.
For reasons unbeknownst to me, Yale University is a highly regarded bastion of higher learning. The best and the brightest walk the campus grounds, and most graduates are offered prestigious, high-paying jobs. Now employers need to decide if they want to hire an econ grad who decided to skip his or her midterm because they needed a safe space.
