Incomplete 'grade'


Letters to the Editor

David Goin
I was disappointed in the content of an article appearing in the Oct. 17 Oklahoma Gazette (News, “Degrading the grade”). I am particularly concerned about a quotation attributed to me (“it’s just about too much to ask”) followed by words that are a misrepresentation of my position and expectations for the academic growth of students.
