We Know of Problems with Ph. D.s and Ed. D.s But What About the Scandal of Honorary Degrees?

Honorary Degrees

When Joseph Epstein ridiculed Dr. Jill Biden for insisting on using her title, he caused a firestorm in academia and the media. He not only irritated holders of the Ph. D. and Ed. D., but honorary degrees. He declared, “Between the honorary degrees given to billionaires, the falsely intelligent, entertainers and the politically correct, just about all honor has been drained from honorary doctorates.” This column is about the scandal in higher education that is not supposed to be discussed since it involves Ivy League schools and other secular and religious universities. Epstein taught at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, for almost 30 years until 2002 as an untenured professor of English. He currently holds emeritus status in the English Department. In

This Is Kind Of Thinking An Expensive, Private, Liberal Arts School Produces


This week we look at the political genius of a private, liberal arts college student by the name of Ashley Holady. The article comes from Odyssey Online and is titled "7 Responses To Use When Your Republican Dad Brings Up Political Conversations At Thanksgiving.” The essay is another reminder that leftism reduces to the point of the nonexistence of any self-awareness. When not living with her parents, this entitled brat is attending an indoctrination camp in rural New York called the State University of New York at Stony Brook, which comes with a $100,000 price tag. What are the chances her evil Republican father supports some or most of the tuition costs? The entire piece is a pitiful attempt at wit, sarcasm,

Unlawful, Unwanted, and Unnecessary Laws Are Coming, And May Stay With Us

Rule of Law

Since we have not learned from history, we are now about to repeat it. In past plagues, officials, thinking they were doing good, passed laws that often did short-term good and long-term damage. They passed laws that fixed prices and wages (and always failed); forbade a man to change jobs; forced a son to follow in his father’s job; required people to do unpleasant and dangerous jobs; forced people to stay indoors; prohibited people from moving to a different town; and on and on. With the Chinese coronavirus racing around the globe, people are panicking as they fight for food (and toilet paper); purposely trying to infect others; committing suicide, and insisting on close contact with friends and strangers. Dummies are ever

Is America Ready to Lose 200 Years of Progress? A Look at the Data …

American Excptionalism

Anti-Americanism permeates the Left and the Democratic party - they believe that America is a fundamental evil country. They believe that America as a country has been defined by foundational, systemic, endemic racism since the very founding of the country. The likes of the Black Lives Matter ilk believe America is fundamentally immoral. Americans don't deserve the constitutional liberties they've had from the very beginning. Quite astounding remarks from people that want to lead a change in what America stands for in the world. The Democratic party evidently agrees with Black Lives Matter, as no one from their ranks denounced such comments. It is not just people inside America. More recently, a Saudi trainee military pilot reportedly condemned the United States as a

The Reeducation of Educators, Part 2: Indoctrinating Students Through Social Justice

Education Activism

The public school system is beyond repair, and amazingly, parents don't seem to notice or care. It all needs to change - the awareness, the caring, and most of all, the system itself. At the core of the problem, educational programs are guided by social justice theory and therefore reforms within classrooms and districts are guided by a revolutionary lens of racial reckoning and economic redistribution. As social justice cannot be reconciled with facts, science, or merit, this is ripping apart the very notion of traditional learning expectations. Part 1 of this series explored that conundrum vis-a-vis student management and the physical harm your child faces when they attend school. As it stands, actual student violence is tolerated at the same

The Reeducation of Educators, Part 1: Responding to Dangerous Student Behaviors

Reeducation Part1

Consider this a Public Service Announcement for the rest of society that is not currently in reeducation - oops, professional development - over the summer as a public school educator. Unless you’re in the profession, you don’t know how bad it is. By it, I mean the public school system and by bad, I mean anti-white, anti-capitalist, anti-science, and anti-American. Did you think your tax dollars were paying to continue developing teachers in the areas of literacy instruction or mathematical modeling? How quaint. There is hardly a whisper of instructional improvements anymore. In fact, teachers are being brainwashed to think that the whole system was built by and in order to benefit white students, so any attempt at improving reading pedagogy is

Leftist Teaching to Hate America

Here in America, opportunity abounds for all who endeavor to improve one's lot in life. It's a place where the sun rises upon the hopes and dreams of more humans than any other destination in the world. So, how is it possible that the United States has become the object of hatred for so many of its own citizens, especially those under 40? What is it that animates them to destroy our statues, history, buildings, and people they don't agree with? If the name Howard Zinn is not familiar to you, it's time to take a look at his influence in our educational system relevant to the teaching of American history. Karl Marx's spirit has taken several leaves of absence over

America a force for global evil? The facts for the naysayers – share link!

America Evil

Though Beto O'Rourke has suspended his campaign for the presidency of the United States for 2020, he does represent a larger feeling held by people, that permeates the left and the Democratic party - that America is a fundamental evil country. "This is a country that has been defined by foundational, systemic, endemic racism since the very founding of this country," Beto said. He goes on to say, "What a disgusting country this is ... and because America is fundamentally immoral, Americans don't deserve the constitutional liberties they've had from the very beginning." Quite an astounding remark from someone that wants to lead a change in what America stands for in the world. The Democratic party evidently agrees with Beto, as no

Chicago Teachers strike wins a free ride down the toilet

Chicago Teachers Strike

The Chicago Teachers Union reached a landmark tentative agreement for a new contract with Chicago Public Schools. According to the teacher's union, this historic agreement recognizes and values the voice and experience of Chicago educators, and turns the page and provides a new pathway for the union and its rank-and-file members to do right by students and families - so says the teachers union. The Chicago Teachers Union represents more than 25,000 teachers and educational support personnel working in Chicago public schools. So what did this new teacher's agreement win? The agreement in the nation’s third-largest school district includes: Enforceable staffing increases 209 additional social worker positions, a social worker assigned to every school, a case manager assigned to every school,
