Prof Gives Extra Credit to Students Who Wear Masks

The “15% extra credit boost” is almost the same as a test grade.

QUICK FACTS:
  • Professor Drew Morton of Texas A&M University-Texarkana is offering a 15% extra credit for his American Film History class if each student wears a facemask.
  • “If the entire face-to-face class – everyone – properly wears a surgical grade mask during the entire class session (over the nose and mouth, not taking it off to talk) there [will] be a 15% extra credit boost (1 percentage point per week),” the course syllabus reads.
  • “If 19 out of 20 students do it? There will be no extra credit,” it goes on to say.
  • Texas A&M University-Texarkana does not require students to be vaccinated or wear masks, although both are “strongly encouraged” per university policy.
MASK DATA:
  • Globally, data reveals that mask-wearing accomplishes nothing.
  • Both Singapore and New Zealand, countries where masks are mandated, have much greater Covid cases and death rates when compared to Australia, where citizens have not been wearing masks in recent months.
  • A Spanish study found that masks offer zero benefits, a Western pre-Covid epidemiological idea.
  • The study compared young children in classrooms where 5-year-olds were not required to wear masks with 6-year-olds who were required to wear masks.
  • The study concluded that the traditional science of not masking for respiratory viruses is well-supported and masks are therefore ineffective in educational settings.
BACKGROUND:
  • A federal appeals court upheld Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s public school mask ban, noting the ban does not threaten or violate the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) because “other reasonable options” remain for students.
  • A CNN medical analyst, who once supported masking youths, stated that her children will no longer be wearing masks, as they hindered the social development of her children, and highlighted that “the science has changed” on the effectiveness of face coverings.
