(THE LID) – UCLA, which is part of the California college system, suspended Professor Gordon Klein for a few weeks because he refused to grade African American students more leniently than other students. The suspension unfairly hurt Klein’s reputation. Now the professor is fighting back by suing the school.
Gordon Klein, an accounting professor at the university’s Anderson School of Management, was suspended after he sent an email to his class telling them that he wouldn’t satisfy the demands of leftist activists asking him to grade black students on a curve. On Tuesday, he filed suit against the school in L.A., seeking compensatory damages, punitive damages, and attorney fees.
After George Floyd was killed, Klein received a letter from a student who wasn’t black asking that he provide more leniency in grading the work of black students.
