In my opinion this student protest bullshit has no limit. Students should not be restricted to what they can and cannot do.

Improving Student Perception of Grammar - Its time to come clean, face the facts and admit the truth - students are scared of grammar. From the days of crayons and nap time straight through high school they always hope and pray that a random fire drill, a.k.a. a gift from God, will disrupt the dreaded grammar lessons and exercises.
