The standards of education are going down the toilet. We all knew this was going to happen once schools introduced remote learning during the pandemic, and now we have first-hand proof thanks to some kids at NYU.

According to a report from the New York Post, NYU chemistry professor Maitland Jones Jr. says that he was fired from his job after 82 of his 350 students signed a petition saying “his class too difficult and was at fault for their failing grades.” The also complained that he addressed students in a “condescending and demanding” tone.

That’s just embarrassing. You’re taking an organic chemistry class and complaining it’s too hard?

The whiny kids also were complaining that Jones did not offer extra credit and that his lectures were not available on Zoom.

“Students were misreading exam questions at an astonishing rate,” Jones, who had decades of experience said in a grievance to the school, according to the New York Times.  He also addressed the fall-off in student performance since the pandemic saying, “In the last two years, they fell off a cliff. We now see single-digit scores and even zeros.

“They weren’t coming to class, that’s for sure, because I can count the house. They weren’t watching the videos, and they weren’t able to answer the questions.”

Do we really need any further proof that no one knows how to learn and students have been babied for far too long? I remember going out to keggers, having to cram all night for an exam, and still showing up to get it done.
