Freedom Under Assault Week in Higher Education

Freedom Under Assault Week in Higher Education

Your weekly report on campus news.

When students are singled out and harassed for their political opinions, we do not have freedom.

Many things we hold dear are under assault.

Yet it is the left that is in a constant state of rage.

Everything is politicized.

Certain things cannot be questioned.

This is college?

A gun would have worked, too.

Columbia has a sports program?

“….Secretary DeVos announced that the Trump Administration was planning to defund the two most anti-American universities in my home state of North Carolina.

Those are Duke University, and the nation’s oldest college, The University of North Carolina—due to their institutional anti-semitism, but that’s just a start.”

Any updates on this action?

Dysfunctional Education

The only way for Americans to avoid being pulled down in a vortex of the self-indulgent ignorance that characterizes our education establishment is to cut loose from that establishment: to stop funding it, and to create another, honest one.

During Word War II, only 4 percent of some 18 million draftees were illiterate. Despite (or because?) of massive expenditures on education over the subsequent two decades, 27 percent of the Vietnam war’s draftees were judged functionally illiterate. Between 1955 and 1991, the inflation-adjusted average K-12 per-pupil expenditure in America rose 350 percent. In 1972, 2,817 students scored 750 or better on each half of the SAT. By 1994, only 1,438 made this score though the test had been made easier. Today, U.S. 15 year olds rank 24th out of 71 countries in science, and 38th in math. In 2018, college students spent less than a third of the time their grandparents did studying for their classes.

    This past week, the noise from Washington drowned out three items of news that remind us of how corrupt and dumbed down American education has become, how far into society the rot has spread and how much it would take to remedy it.

    Harvard University hailed Judge Allison D. Burroughs’s decision that it had not really, really, discriminated against Asian applicants. The judge did not think it discriminatory that Harvard invited applications from Asian males only if they scored above 1380 out of 1400 on the PSAT, to Asian females only if they got over 1350, to white males only if over 1310, and admitted black students who were barely above the national average of 1000. Nearly all other American institutions of higher education do similar things. For the Supreme Court to try undoing the bitter legacy of a half century’s “affirmative action” it would have to re-establish the authority of the dictionary.
