I just did a little browsing, and see that the average grade for college students attending public schools is now a little over 3.0 and for students at private schools it is over 3.2.   That is up from about 2.5 in the 1950s.  My source for that has a last name and a publication year in this century, so it qualifies as debate evidence.  Those averages include students that flunked out (been there, done that), so the average grades of those who continue to "matriculate" must be somewhat higher, and who eventually graduate, even higher than that.

CEDA is now giving Scholar Honorable Mention recognition to below average students, and surely many of the 3.25 GPA Cum Laude students at private schools will be in the lower half of their graduating class.  The bus to Lake Wobegon will be leaving on schedule.
