    It looks like you're to soon be a failed student for not doing your studies and cheating on your schoolwork.

    If the to-be-failed student were a Republican, and the other students Socialists, and all were seeking grades for law school admission, Cultural relativism works.

    Likewise, if Robert Bork is denied a seat on the Supremes, because his pro-life arguments are too brilliant, Consequentialism works.

    If Jews in the 1930s are simply bad actors in German society, Commonsense views about well-being works.  ("Lock them up.")

    And if all the students are Kantian Golden Rule Categorialists, then the Categorical Imperative tends to be the best real-class (oxymoron?) answer; however, if the Kantians are all (or maybe all but one, Isaac) National Socialists, then it is commonsense to fail the one Jew in the class; cf the historical example of Edmund Husserl, dismissed ("failed") in the 1930s from class (teaching) for being (somewhat) Jewish.

    Imho, the question is too clever by half.
