Professor Who Called on ‘Privileged’ Students Last Ends Up Resigning

Professor Who Called on ‘Privileged’ Students Last Ends Up Resigning

“How am I supposed to get a full participation grade if I’m not called on because of the way I was born?”

This is what passes for higher education now? Calling on people according to privilege?

The College Fix reports:

Professor who called on the ‘privileged’ last in class ends up resigning

The sociology professor who would only call on whites, men and the “privileged” after other options were exhausted has ended up resigning her position.

The practice, called “progressive stacking,” gives “minority voices” first priority. Binghamton University’s Ana Maria Candela had spelled out in her syllabus that she would use the procedure in class.

“[I]f you are white, male, or someone privileged by the racial and gender structures of our society to have your voice easily voiced and heard, we will often ask you to hold off on your questions or comments to give others priority and will come back to you a bit later or at another time,” the syllabus read.

Earlier this year the university reportedly made Candela (pictured) remove the policy from her syllabus — which led to a campus protest. Candela told those assembled at the demonstration that the support she received shows policies like progressive stacking remain necessary.

Sean Harrigan, one of Candela’s white male students (who also happens to write for Campus Reformended up filing a Title IX complaint about the progressive stacking, saying “How am I supposed to get a full participation grade if I’m not called on because of the way I was born?”

A few weeks ago, Professor Candela “quietly” tendered her resignation from Binghamton U, the student paper Pipe Dream reported.

Candela told the paper she had been “treated with such callous disrespect by members of the administration, [the] media and public relations and by a student in my course that to continue to contribute my labor to the institution would involve a profound lack of self-love and self-respect.”

That’s a win for higher education.

So a stupid person got upset for being called stupid. Next?

Go love yourself in the unemployment line.

Good luck finding another academic job! Wal-mart has openings, but if you refuse to help those with ‘privilege’, e.g., the white disabled veteran in the wheelchair, don’t expect BLM to protest on your behalf.

Progressive stacking = preferential treatment = racism.

The foundation of “progressive” Democrats….

Many ‘resignations’ are actually firings.

That’s kind of nice she quit. These things so rarely have a happy ending.
