I am really getting tired of seeing these kinds of lawsuits. One would think that knowledge of mathematics would be prerequisite for a degree in graphic arts. Oh wait, it is. The article failed to mention whether or not this student requested help with her math skills BEFORE she failed the class. And, it's very likely she knew about the requirements when she began the degree program. Maybe that's when the issue should have been addressed.

"Harris questioned the usefulness of the math courses for Valdez's career plans of becoming a graphic artist.

"Nobody will say these general education classes are essential to a degree in art," he said."

Different schools have different requirements for classes needed to fulfill a degree in any given subjects.
.
Some expect not only at least one math course. But also powerpoint, speaking, typing/keyboarding, knowledge of at least two forms of OSs, etc....
.
If she does not think that she could get her degree in that school due to her math skills. Then maybe she should look at a different college for her schooling.

Very true. But I believe most degree programs require some kind of math.

True. Some only require basic math.
