How’s this for a line from the following excerpted article by Jason Morgan: “As for the students: a common lament among those who take universities seriously is that graduating seniors are statistically no better educated than incoming freshmen.”
Lovely, eh? And a load of student load debt as icing on the cake.
Here’s more from Morgan’s piece:
While the faculty, administrators, and trustees bask in the splendor of their educational empire, the students under their care descend deeper and deeper into a maelstrom of insecurity, impecuniousness, immaturity, and the insatiable lust for sex, power, and diversion. Addled with drug and drink, host to a staggering rate of venereal disease (half of the new cases each year occur among 15- to 24-year-olds), crushed under student loan debt, and, increasingly, unable to find anything better to do with their time than riot, the American university student – ignorant, ill-mannered, and enraged – would seem to be the diametrical opposite of the American university system he inhabits.
Everything is power, the professors proclaim. There are no eternal truths. The United States is an oppressive society. Capitalism is the enemy. Everyone around you is a racist. Scott Walker is Hitler. I hate Republicans. The only possible relationship to the university is one of thievery. The only legitimate subjects of inquiry are the grievances of the perpetually aggrieved.
As for the students: a common lament among those who take universities seriously is that graduating seniors are statistically no better educated than incoming freshmen. This is all true when “educated” is taken to mean “having greater facility with logic, language, math, science, and history than one previously enjoyed.” But, as the now undeniable outbreak of full-blown Maoist Cultural Revolution on our campuses makes clear, the students have been soaking in every word their teachers have said.
