Student journalists at Ithaca College want their professors to incorporate diversity and inclusion into class discussions “in every area of academia.”
In an editorial Wednesday, The Ithacan notes that eight administrators, including the president, have stepped down in the past year under pressure from student protesters, leaving a leadership void that the editors believe must be filled by the faculty.
“The topics of diversity, inclusion, and oppression…took center stage last semester, but they remain areas of discussion many students still do not know much about,” the editors complain. “If students are to become the well-rounded critical thinkers this college wants them to be, it is professors who have the most influence and responsibility to teach them.
I gather what these student want taught is hate toward their fellow man instead of actually learning the subject of the class which will help them in their hopefully quest for a job in the future. Some students in my reading even request grades not be issued because that is aggressive behavior on the part of the school.
Funny this reminded me I received a book from one of the colleges which highlighted taking classes in which you would get no grade. I do not believe it was the same as my reference in the previous paragraph.
