Equity Through Mediocrity Week in Higher Education

Equity Through Mediocrity Week in Higher Education

Your weekly report on campus news.

Thanks and credit to Professor Jonathan Turley for inspiring the title of this week’s higher education round-up.

We already have quite a bit of mediocrity floating around in education, don’t we?

The battle over CRT rages on.

Schools are still trying to ignore parents.

But parents are not backing down.

Even Mitch McConnell is getting involved.

Democrats are trying to mandate CRT by planting ‘ethnic studies’ in lower grades.

Cancel culture is still alive and well.

This is STILL going on?

What political bias?


These things happen.

Half the population is better than mediocre and half is worse. The problem isn’t valorizing mediocrity but valorizing stupidity.

Mediocre because excellence is over-rated.

    Remember when Roman Hruska defended Carswell’s nomination for SCOTUS because mediocre people deserve representation too?
    Then we got Garland, to whom Carswell is like Edison.

As in most areas, the terms excellence and diversity cannot be used together.
