So let me get this straight. You want to give money to professors based on how much their students like them? Isn't this going to make the professors focus more on pushing their students through with high grades so they can earn extra cash? This is Texas A&M right? Can't be. Thank god I go to UTEP...

Leave it to the Aggies and the Sooners to come with new ways to cheapen an education. It's just human nature to dislike a professor that gave a person a poor grade. Therefore professors are being rewarded for providing the path of least resistance ( easiest courses) to their students in order to get some additional cash.

I find the notion of rewarding instructors based on the opinion of those instructed worthy of praise. I do not expect grade inflation. I could be wrong. My favorite teachers have alwys been those that challenged me. We should always look to reward the best, and try to improve the rest.
