If you want to know, ask her! You can sign the Petition to Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to Voluntarily Release Her College Grade Point Average on the Care2 petitionsite. The petition summary and letter offer good reasons why voters should be able to consider this information. And besides, didn't your employer inquire about your education and experience when interviewing you? Were you allowed to refuse information about your performance in college? Why should we be entitled to any less information when considering who to hire as our Vice-President?

Her record does count, of course, but she doesn't have much of one to show for herself. Neither does Obama, but a degree from Harvard Law School with honors (at least a 3.5 GPA) says something in itself. Palin attended 5 colleges, none of which had admissions requirements, to pull together a bachelor's in journalism and communictions. We should not only know her GPA, but she should be able to explain how this education is relevant to the office of the Presidency.

Due to privacy in education laws, the only way we can determine Palin's GPA is if she freely tells us. Tell her you want to know! "Federal privacy laws prohibit the schools from disclosing her grades, and none of the schools contacted by The Associated Press could say why she transferred." Palin switched colleges 6 times in 6 years By NICHOLAS K. GERANIOS, Associated Press Writer Thursday, September 4, 2008 (09-04) 17:03 PDT Spokane, Wash. (AP) -- Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin seems to have switched colleges at least six times in six years, including two stints at the University of Idaho before graduating from there in 1987. "Our office was not contacted by anyone," said Tania Thompson, spokeswoman for the University of Idaho in Moscow. Palin, the governor of Alaska, was born in Idaho. Her family moved when she was only a few months old to Alaska, where she was raised. According to a biography - "Sarah" by Kaylene Johnson - Palin and three friends went to the University of Hawaii at Hilo after graduation from high school in Alaska in 1982. But they left after a few weeks because of the constant rain there, the book said. The registrar at Hawaii-Hilo has no record that she ever enrolled, school officials said Thursday. Palin, then known as Sarah Louise Heath, and a friend then traveled to Honolulu and enrolled at Hawaii Pacific University, a private, nonsectarian school. She attended only as a freshman during the fall of 1982, school spokeswoman Crystale Lopez said. She was in the business administration program as a full-time student, Lopez said Thursday. "We're trying to track down someone who knew her," Lopez added. From Hawaii Pacific, Palin transferred to North Idaho College, a two-year school in Coeur d'Alene, about 30 miles east of Spokane. She attended the college as a general studies major for two semesters, in spring 1983 and fall 1983, spokeswoman Stacy Hudson said. "We were not able to track down club affiliations or anything," Hudson said. The school identified one of her professors but he did not remember her, Hudson said. Prior to her selection by McCain, the North Idaho College Alumni Association notified Palin in June she would be the recipient of its 2008-2009 Distinguished Alumni of the Year Award. From North Idaho College, Palin transferred 70 miles south to the University of Idaho, the state's flagship institution. She majored in journalism with an emphasis in broadcast news. She attended Idaho, whose mascot is the Vandals, from fall 1984 to spring 1985. She then returned to Alaska to attend Matanuska-Susitna College in Palmer in fall 1985. Then she returned to Idaho, for spring 1986, fall 1986 and spring 1987, when she graduated. Despite her journalism degree, she does not appear to have worked for the college newspaper or campus television station, school officials said. She worked briefly as a sportscaster for KTUU in Anchorage after she graduated college. The McCain campaign did not have an immediate comment on Palin's higher education record. Palin's biography on her Alaska governor's website indicates only that she graduated from Idaho in 1987.
