What are you getting for your tuition dollars?
Well, for one thing, ignorance and baseless panic.
Students at Indiana University this week went into conniptions because they mistook a Catholic priest for a member of the Ku Klux Klan ( http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2016/04/06/indiana-university-students-mistake-priest-for-kkk-member/ ). As these benighted students saw it, the priest was a Klansman walking around in his robes, all alone, and carrying a whip (it turned out to be the priest’s rosary).
So they freaked out on the social media, warning each other of the “threat” strolling around the campus. A dorm adviser, remarking that the students were “terrified” and “rightly so,” advised students to stay indoors until the crisis had passed.
All that dread and fear for nothing!
Of what conceivable use will these students be to society if they ever get around to leaving college and trying to live in the real world?
America has too many colleges and universities, with too many idiots and shysters teaching there, and way too many young people “learning” from them, at a cost which far exceeds their value.
Time to cut it way, way back… if we’re not too late already.
