The Chronicle of Higher Ed is reporting that good 'ol Simon Fraser U. in British Columbia (aka "Beautiful B.C.") has approved a new grade called "FD" which stands for "failure for academic dishonesty." The new grade is intended to serve as a veritable "Scarlet Letter" for those caught cheating and will remain on a student's transcript for two years after they are dismissed at which point it will convert to a plain old "F."
Tell us, America, what you think of this idea from our good neighbors to the north. Please feel free to leave your comments below.
I am the scholarship dude.
