Dr. Paul Thomas

After more than three decades of teaching, Furman education professor Paul Thomas still doesn’t enjoy the task of assigning his students a final grade. Now that the fall term is coming to an end at the university, Dr. Thomas wrote an open letter to his students explaining why he believes a grade should not be the ultimate embodiment of what they learned in the classroom during the past few months. The post, which originally appeared on Thomas’ blog, “The Becoming Radical,” was reprinted in the “Answer Sheet” of The Washington Post.
