American Colleges are Toxic to America

In just one more example of how our higher education system is a spearhead in the movement to convert and subvert America to communism/socialism, the colleges in S Carolina are refusing to provide courses on the Constitution and other founding documents as required by S Carolina's State Statute.

It is time we do to the higher educations institutions as we have done to the 5th column media...call them out, fine them and close them down.

What egotistical, elitist, smug, dangerous bastards they all are....

Higher non-education

Where have you been? This

Where have you been? This has been going on since colleges were established. Even Hillsdale, which prides itself on teaching the Constitution hasn't recognized that Progressive politicians have emasculated the document since 1824 and teaches its students that the Constitution is still relevant.

Well it seems to me that if

Well it seems to me that if they don't teach that the Constitution is relevant then they've given up on the whole idea of what America is meant to be.

The state of higher education

The state of higher education just hasn't been the same since Trump University closed.

pmcon, given his academia

pmcon, given his academia credentials at MIT, is going to being a visiting Prol at Hillsdale in the semester starting after the first of the year. It will be an update on the US Constitution.

In the first class, he'll put up this chart:

1. The Constitution is irrelevant.

2. Discuss.

3. Class dismissed; everyone will be getting an A.

4..This completes your semester.

Actually ,the answer is

Actually ,the answer is sending children there who have been taught what is BS and what isn't.
Myself I blame faculty in a lot of schools particularly liberal arts etc..
I remember IMO when the downfall started, it was the late 60's Vietnam protest era. Faculty figured out it wasn't' nice to fail a student and have them dropout and get drafted. So, everyone got a passing grade, prof. didn't have to dress up and could be cool with students.

For now best answer is just accept there isn't much one can do about it just don't send kids to bad ones.
As has been mentioned by many make sure student is going for something marketable.

My daughter went to a very liberal college for women majoring in nursing. Yes, the activism was a paint end pf 4 years she still wasn't anti anything but it was not easy to be anti something. In end she got a degree and it served her well in every job she got.

What’s really a shame is that

What’s really a shame is that universities don’t teach kids how to hang an effective sentence anymore. And half of college graduates can’t even use a possessive apostrophe correctly.

Right, Webster?

Not only what's being

Not only what's being indoctrinated into these young minds, but, the amount of debt that is being foisted on them.
A good article on the student debt problem along with some solutions:

When I was in high school 45

When I was in high school 45 plus years ago, one half year of education on the constitution and a full year of American history were required to graduate......... not anymore.

At least when the Soviets indoctrinated someone... they didn't get a bill for it later.

Let's overlook that Watcher

Let's overlook that Watcher apparently has no objection to the State mandating what each school district has to teach. Of more interest is all the other required subjects mandated by the SC Legislature.

Hey Gerry....I didn't read

Hey Gerry....I didn't read all of the requirements but I saw nothing untoward. You will note that the SC teachers are ignoring the requirement to teach Americans about America. The people are, after all, Socialist teachers marching as to war against America, her culture, her the Capitalism system, individual freedom, the person above the crowd or State...etc.

I stand by my opinion...teachers, professors, education administration are truly the 5th column in our midst.

I pirated this from Toolsmith's post on the institutional ignorance and it is on point...

The kids are taught to be dumb

Thanks, Watcher. I was amazed

Thanks, Watcher. I was amazed the trolls didn't pounce when I posted it!

And it is so "on point", and true. Every day, I encounter young people who literally know nothing of the past... or even the present.

Except, of course, what they've been told to think. Do not, however, ask them to define any of the topics. They can't.

Yes, Fair Share; those SC

Yes, Fair Share; those SC mandates are pretty onerous:

=============================================================

SECTION 59-29-10. Required subjects.

The county board of education and the board of trustees for each school district shall see that in every school under their care there shall be taught, as far as practicable, orthography, reading, writing, arithmetic, geography, English grammar and instruction in phonics, the elements of agriculture, the history of the United States and of this State, the principles of the Constitutions of the United States and of this State, morals and good behavior, algebra, physiology and hygiene (especially as to the effects of alcoholic liquors and narcotics upon the human system), English literature, and such other branches as the state board may from time to time direct.

HISTORY: 1962 Code Section 21-411; 1952 Code Section 21-411; 1942 Code Section 5321; 1932 Code Section 5338; Civ. C. '22 Section 2589; Civ. C. '12 Section 1731; Civ. C. '02 Section 1201; 1896 (22) 161; 1942 (42) 1453; 1998 Act No. 400, Section 11.

SECTION 59-29-15. Teaching cursive writing and multiplication tables required.

(A) In addition to the requirements that writing and arithmetic be subjects of instruction in each school district pursuant to Section 59-29-10, each school district shall:

(1) provide instruction in cursive writing to ensure that students can create readable documents through legible cursive handwriting by the end of fifth grade; and

(2) require students to memorize multiplication tables to ensure that students can effectively multiply numbers by the end of fifth grade.

==========================================================

We can argue over who should determine what is taught. But readin', ritin', and rithmatic seem pretty unobjectionable, unless you're a real loopdy loo.

Just what don't you like in the enumerated subjects? Please be specific.....
