How many times have we heard progressive students claim that another person’s words or ideas made them feel unsafe on campus? They should try being a conservative for one day.
- Conservative Student Leaving Syracuse University Due to Harassment and Threats
- Conservative Students Sue SUNY-Binghamton and Leftist Campus Groups Over Anti-Conservative Bias And Disruptions
Higher education has other concerns.
- English Dept. at Rutgers to Deemphasize Traditional Grammar in Solidarity With Black Lives Matter
- California State U. to Require Course on Ethnic Studies, Social Justice

Everything is racist.
- UConn Medical School Suspending Honor Society Over Fear That Merit-Based Criteria is Racist
- Student Activists at Harvard Want the Board of Overseers to Change its Name
Except for stereotyping the Irish, apparently.
Tests are hard.
- Students at Harvard Law School Call for ‘Automatic Bar Admission’

This is spot on.

I have been traveling, and I see I have missed on some really great posts..
One caught my eye,, the students at Harvard wanting automatic bar admission… Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.
I have not got my brain wrapped around illegal aliens being admitted to the bar(s) of NY and CA. I know about that because they used to be on Tucker’s show quite often.
My neck is sore from shaking my head so much recently.
TY Mike for the round up.
To the better informed attorneys out there:
What role will/could State Constitutional rights play regarding the reopening of physical in person public schools K-12 this fall?
Given that most State Constitutions require public education, equal protection provisions applied to that and that many consent decrees exist which have had Federal courts imposing very stringent conditions regarding what physical infrastructure and programs must be in place in order to meet those requirements.
How could this play out? Will courts ignore the decades of consent decree requirements for certain things that can only be delivered in person vs on line?
How can they do so when the scientific evidence from other Nation’s experience with classroom attendance doesn’t demonstrate elevated risk? Nor when CDC data and the Pediatric Physicians groups are urging in person school attendance?
Students who want to skip the bar exam should do so, colleges should un-enrole them, with prejudice.
