An experiment we ought to try in Israel

Isn't it amazing what happens when you put this sort of thing into a perspective that these kids can understand (Hat Tip: Debbie R).
Oliver Darcy, a recent college graduate, proposes that students with good grades contribute their GPA to their academically sluggish friends. He argues that this is how the federal government takes wealth from the country’s high wage earners and distributes it to the low income earners.

“They all earn their GPA,” said Darcy in an interview with "Fox and Friends." “So we asked them if they’d be interested in redistributing the GPA points that they earned to students who may be having trouble getting a high GPA.”

Darcy, who films his encounters with teachers and fellow students, doesn’t have much luck selling this theory.

He said many students on college campuses support high taxes on the rich, but when put into relative terms, cringed at the thought of spreading around their academic wealth.

In a video posted on Exposingleftists.com, one student said, “If I do give GPA points to students that don’t deserve it, it isn’t fair, I work for what I have.”
We ought to try this in all our Leftist universities here. I wonder if the poor little rich girl from Kfar Shmaryahu would contribute.

By the way, Israel Radio's Keren Neubach went all out on Thursday morning, interviewing 'social protesters' all over southern Israel. We wouldn't want the 'Palestinians' to distract us, would we?
