With a brief summary of the pro-choice legislation passed recently in several states.
For 2008-18. The highest paid in 2018 was C. L. Max Nikias of the Univ. of Southern Cal, whose total compensation was $7,061,188.
Color me completely unsurprised. Yet another dopey Liberal idea that won't work and will probably be counterproductive.
But the sudden disappearance of a pillar of the college admissions equation is having unexpected consequences — making the application process more confusing, more competitive and more opaque than ever before.
"Once Held Hostage By Teachers’ Unions, West Virginia Just Passed The Nation’s Broadest School Choice Law"
A relatively brief attempt to answer an important question: "For a state that couldn’t pass a modest measure on Education Savings Accounts just two years ago, it’s a breathtaking turnaround. What changed?"
I don't know if this was around when I was teaching, but I'm glad I don't have to think about it now.
I would say that this is unbelievable, but, hey, it's America in 2021.
"EXCLUSIVE: NCSU mandatory diversity training includes 'whitesplaining,' toxic masculinity' and 'hate speech' lessons"
So glad I’m retired. This bullshit is just ridiculous. Worse than ridiculous. It’s stupid.
It seems to me that the message of mandatory diversity training is "shut up and stick to your own kind". I mean, you can avoid "whitesplaining" by not talking to blacks, "toxic masculinity" by avoiding women in the workplace, and "hate speech" by keeping to yourself. Nobody wants to be offensive, right?!
I had a few weak students, but I guess I was lucky--I didn't have any like these.
"A student came in with a research paper bibliography that listed 'my mom' as a source several times."

"A student came to my office a week after the final and asked me why she had failed the course. She hadn’t turned in a single assignment — or written the final."
By an associate professor at the Univ. of Chicago.
He recommends love, determination, courage, (getting) support, and perspective. He's been through it and I haven't, but I think "love" would be really hard to come by.
"New college promises real-world STEM training, traditional liberal arts education in 3 years at low cost"
Sounds good to me and I don't expect to have to pay for anybody's college education. Imagine how it will sound for some of the folks that do.
