The Right take on higher education.

The Regime’s Radicalism Further Revealed


My Pope Center colleague Jay Schalin today has this piece at American Thinker. The subject is the Obama regime’s reconstituting of the National Advisory Council on Institutional Quality and Integrity (NACIQI) with nothing but people who share a leftist, multiculturalist view of higher education.

Federal advisory committees like NACIQI seldom accomplish anything useful. The old NACIQI at least tried to point to the fact that higher education these days is often an education in name only. (Our friend Anne Neal was a member.) The new committee is going to be filled with people whose foremost concerns are not apt to be the quality of instruction in fundamental skills and knowledge, but instead whether colleges and universities are doing their utmost for “diversity” and proselytizing for trendy leftist ideas.
