Punishing Achievement Week in Education

Your weekly report on education news.

Some of the very people who are supposed to be helping students are holding them back in the name of equity.

The left’s political agenda stands in the way of everything.

So much of it is about language.

Professor Jacobson breaks it down here.

She did nothing wrong.

Progressive policy becomes a discipline.

So unfair.

People pay for this?

Good.

This is the way.

What happened to Harvard?

He may be right.

That’s a little creepy.

Honest measurable achievement threatens Democrats and their grip on power.

Punishing achievement is number two. Number one is rewarding failure.

Alternatives exist.

A quick search at Amazon for “college” and “scam” turns up five titles.

At some point, I’m not proud to confess: If you and your family continue to feed the beast then I have trouble feeling much sympathy for you and your family.

After all, smarter people than I’ll ever be … have often been quoted saying, “Insanity is doing the same things over and over again whilst expecting a different result.”

America’s colleges and universities in 2023 are no place to be if you are reasonably bright; if you have mostly Caucasian background; if you have any African background; if you have any Asian background; if you have any Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Muslim background; if you don’t want to be accused of rape.

America’s colleges and universities in 2023 no longer value truth, excellence, individual ambition. Why would anyone want four years of such toxic nonsense.

Again, there are alternatives.

Imho Americans need to grow up, accept reality, and deal with it.

    True. Academia has quit the world of liberal education upon which it was founded many centuries ago. Academia has devolved to the dystopian world of illiberal ‘education’.

Are they coordinated from control, or slaves to the same programming playing out in the same circumstances?

Academia’s been manufacturing sleeper agents unaware they’re waiting for their go code for generations.
