If this is what our higher education system is going to be like for the next four to eight years, it deserves to collapse.

Georgetown Offers Class Credit For Attending Anti-Trump Teach-In

A professor at Georgetown University offered her students course credit if they attended a teach-in rallying opposition against president-elect Donald Trump.

The class “The Cultural Politics of HIV in the US and South Africa” required students to attend a World AIDS Days event and write a 2-3 page paper about it, according to a new report from Campus Reform. But since many of the events were off-campus or required students to buy a ticket, Prof. April Sizemore-Barber offered her class an alternative: A Dec. 3 on-campus event, “Teach-In for Radical Hope: Sowing Seeds of Liberation.”

The teach-in was an overtly political event, inviting participants to “channel all the anti-Trump rage into a pro-Liberation rhetoric that moves people into action.” According to a write-up at the time, the teach-in touched on a wide array of progressive topics, from illegal immigration to labor rights to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Attendees directly compared Trump to Adolf Hitler and one even said “violence may be necessary” to stop his administration, according to Campus Reform.

Well, look on the bright side; at least college these days isn’t entirely about extracurricular non-consensual sex.
