The Right take on higher education.

Infiltrating the Enemy Camp


Ashley Thorne of NAS writes here about her experience in taking an online course entitled “Facilitating Diversity Education Experiences: A Guide for New Professionals.” It took $130 out of the NAS budget to find out what really goes on in such courses.

What goes on is simply a lot of airy blather. It’s evident that this “course” is just a way for the diversity industry to suck up some money while slapping an inane credential on kids who aspire to becoming “diversity facilitators.”

Keep it up, NAS! Work like this is exceedingly valuable in an “emperor is wearing no clothes” way.
