It’s fun to imagine how something like this would have gone over eight years ago.

Campus Reform reports:

Union asks profs to give extra credit for anti-Trump events

Faculty members at a Washington college are being encouraged to award students extra credit for attending a “Day of Resistance” featuring a slew of events condemning the Trump administration.

The event, sponsored in part by Shoreline Community College’s Federation of Teachers, the union representing the school’s faculty, was advertised in a faculty-wide email by English Professor DuValle Daniel, who asked her peers to consider bringing one of their classes to the May Day program.

“If you would like to bring your class to an event, please RSVP,” Daniel wrote, according to an email distributed using a faculty listserv and obtained by Campus Reform.

The email, containing a schedule of events for the “Day of Resistance,” then went on to ask faculty to “please support this effort in one or more of the following ways,” such as giving “students extra credit to attend events on their own,” discussing the history of the “May Day marches and rallies in [their] classrooms and [sharing] information about the 2017 Day of Resistance,” and even avoiding “assigning work that students cannot make up on May Day if they decide to join the immigrant march downtown.”

Oh well, if this generation wants to spend that much money getting so little education it’s on them. The turds who were in the streets protesting in the 60’s are the professors now and encouraging a new generation. After getting that many student deferments to escape “the war” they had to feel that they were much smarter than everyone else. We’ll see.

    I daresay a lot (not all) who protested in the 60s went on to normal work lives, many raised families, and went about their business.

Like healthcare, the government needs to step away from funding schools. It drives the costs up sky-high and attracts incompetent political hacks.

    when the parents become totally responsible for paying
    the vig on these ‘kollage’ loans, the cost will drop like a rock.

    Vigorish, or simply the vig, also known as juice, under-juice, the cut or the take, is the amount charged by a bookmaker, or bookie, for taking a bet from a gambler. In the United States, it also means the interest on a shark’s loan. The term originates from the Russian word for winnings, выигрыш vyigrysh.

    I believe that if the government got out of the student loan business, and education in general, the “studies” departments would shrivel and die like garden slugs sprinkled with salt.
