Evergreen State College, paid for by the taxpayers of Washington State, was in the news last week for holding a “Day of Absence” intended to ban all white persons from the campus (http://www.foxbusiness.com/politics/2017/06/01/racist-protests-shut-down-evergreen-college-as-lawmakers-look-to-strip-funding.html). This was, of course, for “diversity.” Things got rather ugly when one white professor refused to stay away that day and tried to conduct his classes as usual. He was probably lucky to escape injury.
In response to this incident and others, there is now a bill in the state legislature to privatize Evergreen over the next five years–and also, as soon as possible, to strip this palace of ignorance of $24 million it currently receives in funding.
Stand up and cheer! This is exactly what this country needs, coast to coast.
Our “higher education” system has become a nursery of bitterness, educational malpractice, and a hatchery of left-wing lunacy. It is monstrously over-funded, over-staffed, and too many people are vegetating there instead of finding productive work and, well, growing up. It has become a millstone around the nation’s neck.
There is a place for pure scholarship, for love of learning for its own sake, for the preservation of our civilization’s cultural treasures. But our colleges and universities have given up that role.
Why in the world should billions of dollars of public money be shelled out for no other purpose but to undermine the country by filling it with angry idiots who don’t know how to earn a living?
Cut it back. Cut it way, way back.
