My submitted comment on a Chronicle of Higher Education article today regarding student demands that there be fewer courses about “dead white dudes” and more courses about what the students think is important: 

“I am in my sixties now, and I have to say that my first reaction on reading a story like this is the same as my first reaction when I read stories like this fifty years ago: Why do 18 year olds think they are qualified to dictate what they need to study? If their parents were making such demands, I would be more sympathetic.”
