“The job description is heavy on identifying the educational shortcomings of minority students as a fault of the instructor.”
This is just another example of progressive policy becoming academic discipline. The left’s agenda eclipses real scholarship.

Reedley College seeks ‘social injustice’ instructor
A California community college is looking for a tenure-track “social injustice” instructor to teach its ethnic studies courses.
The Reedley College position requires experience “incorporating elements of diversity, equity, and inclusion into all areas of responsibility,” according to the job description, posted on January 9. The position starts in August.
“Recent experience working with African American, Asian/Pacific Islander, Latinx, Native American, and other racially minoritized students in the classroom,” is helpful, along with “an understanding of how historical patterns of exclusion of these groups in higher education shape patterns of participation and outcomes.”
Applications should have a “willingness” to adjust “one’s instructional, relational, and classroom practices to more effectively engage and support racially minoritized students.”
The job description is heavy on identifying the educational shortcomings of minority students as a fault of the instructor.
An “equity-minded individual” will “[reframe] inequities as a problem of practice and views the elimination of inequities as an individual and collective responsibility.”
“Note how loaded this requirement is: all ‘inequities’ are a ‘problem of practice,’” John Sailer, with the National Association of Scholars, tweeted in his commentary. Sailer highlighted the job opening on his account.
