Is this guy on target, or what?
Dr. Walter Williams, who’s been a college professor for most of his life, nails it again in his townhall.com column for the day, “Colleges, a Force for Evil.”
Williams tabs our collidges and looniversities as “a focal point for the destruction of traditional American values,” and especially decries their overwhelming “contempt for the First Amendment,” supporting his claim with a multitude of examples. He’s not too sold on our high schools, either.
Yo, America! We’re “educating” our country to death.
It’s time we defunded these institutions, which have become parasitic and actively harmful to our nation’s health.
I once asked a high school Advanced Placement class, “What do you think of a country that devotes enormous, costly resources–in this case, the school building and its maintenance, textbooks, salaries and pensions, and an ever-expanding staff–to teaching a whole generation that their country is not worthy of their loyalty?”
They didn’t know how to answer that; and some months later, a girl from that class approached me in the hall and said, “I just can’t stop thinking about that question that you asked us!”
You go, girl! Keep on thinking. We need a lot more thinking here–and a lot less college.
