Students at a Pennsylvanian University are reportedly being offered extra credit for protesting President Donald Trump’s tax reform bill.

In an email titled “Additional Extra Credit Opportunity!,” the professor offered the political bribe, Campus Reform reports:

At least one Kutztown University professor offered students extra credit Tuesday to participate in a rally against the GOP tax plan.

“Please join your faculty as we rally against the GOP Tax Bill that has serious implications to you and on Higher Education. This is an opportunity to gain additional extra credit,” the email states, with a bolded subject line of “Additional Extra Credit Opportunity!”

While the email was initially drafted by Dr. Mauricia John, a professor in the publicly funded school’s Anthropology and Sociology Department, it is unclear whether other professors are offering their students the same opportunity, as the email indicates that the rally is a collaborative effort by the faculty.
