When will students be able to get a degree in WTF?

Given the prevalence of classes like “eco-feminism”, it will not be long

The University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth has an online “ecofeminism” course in which students can learn about topics like “the oppression of nature.”

“Ecofeminism: Philosophy & Practice,” a three-credit course, is being offered by the university during the 2019 spring semester and the school is charging students $1,218, not including a term registration fee, to take the course, which seeks to study different ecofeminist theories

Wow, indoctrination ain’t cheap is it?

The course covers the “study of ecofeminism as systems of oppression based on race, class, gender, sexuality, and ethnicity that stem from a cultural ideology that enables the oppression of nature,” according to its description. “The course explores ecofeminist theories, literature, and practice, including ecofeminist ethics, and the applications of ecofeminism to the lives of individual men and women, as well as cultural institutions and organizations.”

WT actual F?

Teacher fired for refusing to butcher English language

It has come to this

A Virginia high school teacher who refused to use a transgender student’s new pronouns has been fired.

News outlets report that the West Point School Board voted unanimously Thursday to dismiss Peter Vlaming after a four-hour hearing that drew an overflow crowd. The school system said in a statement that Vlaming was fired for insubordination.

Over the summer, the ninth-grade student’s family informed the school system of the student’s gender transition to male. The student wasn’t involved in Thursday’s hearing.

It’s not suggested that the 47-year-old West Point High School French teacher deliberately referred to the student using female pronouns in the student’s presence, but in conversations with others.

Yes, it has come to this

If you like your White male professor then you are a RAAAAACIST!

Good Freaking Grief!

A University of California, Berkeley professor suggested scrapping end-of-semester student evaluations for hiring, promotion, and tenure decisions after claiming that the grades and evaluations are biased against female instructors and people of color.

“Over the next few weeks, students will get the chance to evaluate their professors and TAs. They’re going to get it wrong,” UC Berkeley history professor Brian DeLay tweeted on Sunday. “They’ll be harder on women and people of color than on white men. Tenured white male faculty, in particular, should help their students understand this.”

Oh blah, blah, blah. same old tired rhetoric from the left. Go read it all, and make sure you have some Excedrin or Tylenol nearby

 

Teacher fired for teaching

When I went to school, if you did not complete your homework you got a zero. Today it seems doing nothing is still a 50 somehow

The control of education by moonbats is canceling our future. Already it has cost Port St Lucie, Florida teacher Diane Tirado a job. She was fired for not giving partial credit to students who did not hand anything in:

Mrs. Tirado didn’t get to say goodbye to her student physically, so she wrote her message on a white board instead.

“Bye kids, Mrs. Tirado loves you and wishes you the best in life! I have been fired for refusing to give you a 50% for not handing anything in. [heart] Mrs. Tirado.”

The lowest possible grade allowed by her school’s educrats is 50%. To assign a lower score would be oppression.

Such idiocy cheats students who do the work, and cheats those that do not because it demands nothing from them. Standards do matter!

Professors as propagandists

Shameful, despicable, and some other choice words

A professor teaching a general education math course at Penn State University included pages of his personal opinion on politics and social justice issues in exams.

Campus Reform received copies of exams, including a midterm, from an anonymous student who was concerned by the political nature of the course material when they took Professor Marc Fabbri’s math class last spring. The course material contains large portions of political opinion that have little relevance to the course topic.

Fabbri details several seemingly random environmental efforts in the Great Lakes as well as the 1965 Clean Water Act signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson in section three of a course document titled “Would the Real Trump University Please Stand Up,” obtained by Campus Reform.

Over the course of two and a half pages, the professor gives a lengthy account of how he became aware of fracking before asking students to analyze statistics related to fracking violations.

Fabbri asks students to negate the statement “all those who enjoy religious freedom promote cultural toleration” after detailing, for nearly three pages, several academics’ condemnation of imperialism in a section entitled “Imperialism, Hubris and Cultural Intolerance: Threats to Democracy.”

Welcome to The University of Indoctrination

Nuclear Grade KRAZY!

How do some people get to be professors? Seriously?

A professor at the University of Illinois-Chicago is encouraging others to teach “math for social justice” to help fight the “oppressive status quo” in the United States.

The Struggle is Pedagogical: Learning To Teach Critical Mathematics” was penned by Professor Eric Gutstein, who writes in a new textbook that the time is nigh for social justice math considering the “racist and sexist billionaire in the White House.”

Gutstein, who notes that he once taught a “math for social justice” class at the Social Justice High School in Chicago, argues that teaching “critical mathematics” isn’t an option for math teachers, but rather, a “responsibility to our future.”

“We are in an historical period that challenges us to action in ways that we probably cannot fully understand,” Gutstein asserts.

“Teaching in critical ways is not optional in the present juncture. We have a responsibility to our future and our planet, to life and all species,” he adds. “What we do in the classroom matters, for today and tomorrow, and the myriad possibilities for resistance and transformation are inextricably and dialectically related to the intensity of the crises we face.”

Like I said Nuclear Grade KRAZY!
