(Thanks to Linda for the news tip.)
I was going to wait till I calmed down a bit before I commented on this, but I think that might take too long.
New Mexico is considering legislation to force every high school student to apply to at least one college as a requirement for graduation (https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2018/02/02/new-mexico-could-be-first-state-to-force-students-to-apply-for-college/).
This is, of course, nothing more than a jobs program for “educators.” And it’s bipartisan! That means it’s good, right? Like, the Evil Party and the Nothing Party have actually gotten together to sponsor this, so how could it be wrong?
This really is the limit.
Uh, what if you don’t want to go to college? What if you want to do something useful with your life–like, for instance, become a skilled auto mechanic–instead of sitting in a classroom “learning” about White Privilege?
This is only further evidence of how deeply our governing class despises us and just can’t stop gnawing at our liberties.
For crying out loud! There are already too many colleges and looniversities, too many overpaid and over-pensioned educators, and way, way, way too many young people going to college and having their minds turned into mush! We need to defund and shrink the bloated absurdity called “higher education,” not expand it even more.
This is a shameful and preposterous proposal, and it must be defeated.
