Mandatory class at Idaho college tells students to list examples of white and male privilege

A required course at an Idaho community college instructs students to identify privileges specific to men, whites and members of the “majority religion” in the region, according to a “privileges activity” that a student’s parent shared with The College Fix.

When the student disputed the assumptions in the exercise and said other groups have their own privileges, the instructor and other students “shamed him in a sexist and racist way while claiming their virtue signal points,” the parent wrote in an email.

The experience led the student to request a meeting with the College of Eastern Idaho’s dean of student affairs, Michael Walker.

While the student was able to express his complaints to Walker, the dean recommended he put up with the bias in the class and just try to finish, the student told The Fix via email.

“We have no record of a complaint regarding [the instructor] either with our Dean of General Education, Dr. Angela Sackett, or the Dean of Student Affairs, Michael Walker,” a spokesperson for the college told The Fix in an email.

The student was surprised to learn that his conversation with Walker wasn’t counted. “I thought by talking with him I was filing an official complaint,” he told The Fix: He specifically mentioned a complaint both when scheduling the meeting and in the meeting itself.

The Fix is not identifying the instructor because it could make the student and parent, who requested anonymity, easier to identify. The instructor has not responded to queries sent Thursday.
