Discrimination in Class for "Political Answers"
For one of my classes, we have to short answer a prompt question and then our answer is graded by pier classmates, and essentially our grades our determined by what our other classmates think of our answers to the question. This is actually an Economics class. I feel like I am being discriminated against because my classmates are giving me lower grades because they disagree with me politically. I am more libertarian, which means I am more conservative than I am liberal, which I get the feeling the most of my classmates are much more liberal than I am. Do you think I have the right to appeal some of the grades I am receiving on the basis that they are grading me more for my political responses than for the content and direct answer to the question? I have never before had a class where the other students determine your grade rather than the professor.
