This thread has almost 2,000 views.  I would say his audience is much bigger than yours.

Is that right? Your (sic)very jumpy. Is this your second account?

Your ignorance is like a black hole, sucking in and destroying everything.

When the Supreme Court validates the Janus Lawsuit against teachers' unions confiscating hundreds of millions of teachers'  dollars, to contribute to Democrats almost exclusively, the unions will fight back with the assistance of the idiotic left-wing California legislature.

More money, more money, more money is their siren song, despite the fact that all more money has bought is poorer educational results, for decades.  It will not reverse until the system is changed dramatically.  Teachers send their own children to private schools, like the Obamas did, like the Gores did, like the Clintons did.  What hypocrites these Democrats.

Democrats continue to dumb down America's youth in the classrooms and outside as well.
Joan Swirsky's recent article in the Canada Free Press discusses the vulgarity, the ignorance, the hatefulness of Robert DeNiro, whose tirade at a meeting of Limousine Liberals earned him a standing ovation - as did the awarding of a statue to convicted child rapist, Roman Polanski a few years back.

Democrat children among us are still drooling, spitting, kicking, throwing mud pies, hurling dirty words, crying, lying, and generally devolving at a record pace. - Joan Swirsky in Thank You, Punchy

You continue to dodge my comments. This shows what type of person you are. You previous mentioned that education are for liberals. I responded that Trump and GW Bush went good schools. (Ivy league)

Please do not continue to post if you are not going to defend your comments.

Is their (sic) an audience for your posts?

I had not posted in these parts for about two years and forgot about how smartass you had been in 2018 when I thanked you for your recent warm welcome just this month. 

Please do not continue to post if you can't use simple grammar much less spell words of your own choosing.  It really makes you look foolish. THAT shows what type of person you are.

You misunderstand and misconstrue with your faux question.  Why would you do that, other than trying to virtue posture?

Education is one of the few things a person is willing to pay for and not get. – William Lowe Bryan (1860–1955) 10th president of Indiana University (1902 to 1937)


It has been said that we have not had the three R’s in America, we had the six R’s; remedial readin’, remedial ‘ritin’ and remedial ‘rithmetic. – Robert Maynard Hutchins (also Maynard Hutchins) (1899–1977) educational philosopher, dean of Yale Law School (1927-1929), a president of the University of Chicago (1929–1945) and its chancellor (1945–1951)

Education is the only industry in America that has yet to face significant pressures to cost-cut. – Scott Galloway, New York University Business School, 2020

“Yet universities are becoming laughing stocks of  intolerance….” -Stephen Pinker, liberal and atheist professor, Harvard University

UCI, which brainwashes students who are commonly called "the best and brightest," has the unfortunate distinction of being the home of:

1.  A "scholar" who was swindled by a Nigerian Internet Scammer of more money than anyone else in the world: $3,000,000.

2. A "scholar" who stole eggs from his female patients, fertilized them and then sold them to other patients without proper legal authorization.  He fled to Argentina before he could be prosecuted.

3.  A scam of selling cadaver body parts.

4.  A scam of numerous patients who died while waiting in futility for liver transplants.

5.  A world famous evolutionary biologist who sexually harassed women at UCI and was summarily terminated. 

6.  A "scholar" who forgot about his infant son, strapped into his car seat, who died a horrible death on that hot day.  His father was never prosecuted for child abuse or involuntary manslaughter, both of which were beyond question.

7.  Militant Leftists, socialists and atheists who brainwash at will.

"Public education is a socialist monopoly, a real one." - The Late Milton Friedman

The National Association of Scholars published a paper titled "A Crisis of Competence - The Corrupting Effect of Political Activism in the University of California."

Its title says it all. The activism is purely left-wing.

Victor Davis Hanson: There's nothing stranger in America now than the contemporary university


Not long ago, Americans used to idolize their universities

Nothing is stranger than the contemporary American university.

Not long ago, Americans used to idolize their universities. Indeed, in science, math, engineering, medicine and business, many of these meritocratic departments and schools remain among the top-ranked in the world.

Top-notch higher education explains much of the current scientific, technological and commercial excellence of the United States.

After World War II — won in part due to superior American scientific research, production and logistics — a college degree became a prerequisite for a successful career.



The GI Bill enabled some 8 million returning vets to go to college. Most graduated to good jobs.

The university from the late 1940s to 1960 was a rich resource of continuing education. It introduced the world’s great literature, from Homer to Tolstoy, to the American middle classes.

But today’s universities and colleges bear little if any resemblance to postwar higher education. Even during the tumultuous 1960s, when campuses were plagued by radical protests and periodic violence, there was still institutionalized free speech. An empirical college curriculum mostly survived the chaos of the ’60s.

But it is gone now.

Instead, imagine a place where the certification of educational excellence, the Bachelor of Arts degree, is no guarantee that a graduate can speak, write or communicate coherently or think inductively.

Imagine a place that requires applicants to submit high school grade-point averages and standardized test results but doesn’t require its own graduates to pass a basic uniform competency test.

Imagine a place where after an initial trial period, a minority of elite employees receive lifetime job guarantees.

Imagine a place supposedly devoted to equity where only 30 percent of the faculty are privileged enough to be tenure-tracked. The other 70 percent are second-class, categorized as part-time or "contingent" faculty. And they receive a fraction of the compensation per hour of instruction as their more elite counterparts.

Imagine a place that cherishes student interaction and criticism of the "establishment," yet the ratio of instructors to administrators is about one to one. The money devoted to non-teaching administrative costs is now about equal to the money devoted to classroom instruction.

Imagine a place where "diversity" is the professed institutional ethos, while studies reveal that liberal faculty outnumber their conservative counterparts by over 10 to 1.

Imagine a liberal place where in 2021 race can still be used as a criterion in selecting and rejecting applicants, choosing prospective dorm roommates, organizing segregated dorms and restricting access to special places on campus.

Imagine a progressive place that once renounced unconstitutional "loyalty oaths" but now rebrands them as "diversity pledges" and requires reeducation and indoctrination training.

Imagine a place with non-taxable endowments that restricts free speech and expression. Nonprofit universities make it impossible for some speakers to lecture, and often suspend constitutionally protected due process for students facing particular allegations.

Imagine a place loudly devoted to income, capital and marketplace equity measured against the reality that 800 of the largest colleges and universities hold more than $600 billion in endowments. Yet just 20 elite universities account for half that total. And just four — Harvard, Yale, Stanford and Princeton — account for almost a quarter of all endowment funds.

Imagine a liberal place that has upped its tuition and total costs far beyond the rate of inflation, with its graduates now collectively owing $1.7 trillion in student loan debt. There is little hope that many of these student debtors will ever pay back their obligations, which average more than $30,000 each.

 

Imagine a place that has institutionalized human rights but welcomes nearly 400,000 students from human rights-violating China — a great many of whom are the offspring of elite Communist Party members who provide a lucrative source of university income.

Imagine a place where faculty and students now selectively change the names of campus streets, centers and buildings that honored supposedly illiberal, long-dead donors, graduates and former heroes. Yet curiously, universities never alter their marquee founding brand names. Were founders or original funders such as Leland Stanford, Elihu Yale and Lord Jeffery Amherst not as illiberal as Father Junipero Serra, Earl Warren and Woodrow Wilson, whose names have been canceled on some college campuses?

As long as universities produced highly educated and open-minded graduates at a reasonable cost and kept politics out of the lecture hall, Americans didn’t care much about peculiarities such as tenure, legacy admissions, untaxed endowments, rebellious students and quirky faculty.

But once they began to charge exorbitantly, educate poorly, politick continuously, in debt millions of people and act hypocritically, universities turned off Americans.

Just as sermonizing Hollywood grates when it no longer can make good movies, a once-hallowed but now self-righteous university seems hollow when it charges so much for so little.
