  • Maybe just maybe these liberal universities will learn that all actions have consequences. I doubt it though.

  • Since then, freshman enrollment has plunged by 35 percent, and donations to the athletic department have dropped 72 percent over the year before, according to published reports.

    The University of Missouri had to temporarily close seven dormitories – renting them out for special events, such as homecoming games – and planned to cut 400 jobs.

    “The general consensus was that [declining enrollment] was because of the aftermath of what happened in November 2015,” the New York Times quoted Mun Choi, the new system president, as saying. “There were students from both in the state and out of state that just did not apply, or those who did apply but decided not to attend.”

    There are way too many "institutions of higher learning" in this country now, anyway. People are starting to vote with their dollars, and good for them. We've got kids leaving college with the equivalent of a starter home mortgage worth of debt, a useless piece of paper that doesn't translate to a meaningful job, and their heads full of leftist propaganda that has them supporting dangerous idiots like Bernie Sanders. Let em sink, as far as I'm concerned. We need more colleges likes Hillsdale and fewer like Missouri and Evergreen in my view.

  • Maybe at one time,
    higher education was suppose to teach you how to think.
    Now higher education intends to teach you what to think.

  • Teachers teaching teachers to teach teachers to teach teachers to teach teachers to teach.
    Most have never seen the applied world and have never had to learn anything but theory.
    A 5th generation teacher is 100 years removed from reality.
    Don't get me wrong, teaching is an honerable profession. They should just stay out of politics... As Eddy Murphy once said... "a mind is a terrible thing"...
