The Smartest Bunch of all

Our newest batch of Einsteins to graduate from whatever Institute of scholarship they attended were ejected with report cards containing all “A” grades. We are stunned! For after listening to them speak, hearing the level of grammar used and the extent of their vocabulary, one has to believe English and language skills were not part of the grading process. So what was subjected to course evaluation?

A’s on the rise in U.S. report cards, but SAT scores founder

The good news on America’s report cards: More high school teachers are handing out A’s. But the bad news is that students aren’t necessarily learning more.

Recent findings show that the proportion of high school seniors graduating with an A average — that includes an A-minus or A-plus — has grown sharply over the past generation, even as average SAT scores have fallen.

In 1998, it was 38.9%. By last year, it had grown to 47%.

That’s right: Nearly half of America’s Class of 2016 are A students. Meanwhile, their average SAT score fell from 1,026 to 1,002 on a 1,600-point scale — suggesting that those A’s on report cards might be fool’s gold. [snip]

But that’s not always translating into more college diplomas. A recent study by the Harvard Graduate School of Education found that just 56% of college students complete a four-year degree within six years of entering college. For students who start at two-year colleges, it’s even worse: Just 29% earn a degree within three years.

Examining the academic transcripts of high school graduates in the 18-year period from 1998 to 2016, they found that the average grade point average (GPA) rose from 3.27 to 3.38, even as the average SAT score dropped.

Actually, they said, the upward creep is most pronounced in schools with large numbers of white, wealthy students. And its especially noticeable in private schools, where the rate of inflation was about three times higher than in public schools.

Hurwitz said an A is now “the modal high school grade,” a solid sign of grade inflation.

He said one of the goals of the research is to “make sure that college admissions professionals are equipped to make the best decisions possible.”

But he said high schools are increasingly moving away from class ranking, a traditional metric that helps colleges figure out which students are really achieving above their peers.

Lee said previous research has tied high school GPA to the National Assessment of Educational Progress, a widely respected standardized test administered by the federal government. But the new research is the first to draw such a direct line between GPA and SAT scores. [snip]

He recently told USA TODAY that A’s are now three times more common than they were in 1960.

Rojstaczer has said grade inflation became more prevalent during the Vietnam War era, when professors began awarding higher grades to prevent students from being deployed, since students who dropped out of college were drafted into the military.

College Snowflakes have a psychiatric disorder

This is terrible news; not only are these tender things melting at 0° in stead of 32° but they cannot handle the quotidian exigencies they’ll have to face. It is going to be a long year.

New Concerns Arise About Mental Health Of College Students

New concerns arise about the mental health of students on college campuses all across the country.

Dr. Gene Beresin, a psychiatrist and Executive Director of The Clay Center for Young Healthy Minds at Massachusetts General Hospital, says 50% to 60% of college students have a psychiatric disorder.

“What I’m including in that is the use of substances, anxiety, depression, problems with relationships, break-ups, academic problems, learning disabilities, attentional problems,” says Dr. Beresin. “If you add them all up 50% doesn’t seem that high.”

Some undergraduates at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) agree.

“People go through tough times,” says Dane Erickson, a rising junior from Naples, Florida. “It’s really stressful sometimes here at school.”

“I know a couple of friends who had a difficult first semester last year,” explains Maddie Burgoyne, a rising sophomore from Michigan.

Dr. Beresin says the suicide rate in college in astronomical. “A college student kills himself every day,” he says. [snip]

What will they do if they’re caught out in the open with no safe space in the immediate area? Suppose some nefarious individual utters a “TRIGGER’ word and another underclassman isn’t there to clutch and comfort them.Safe zone worryOne of the most serious fractures in the world of the safe nest is going to happen just before mid-terms: The Presidential Election. They’re going to hear Donald Trump’s name echoing all around the quad, reflecting off the buildings and sneaking into the dorms.

What will the RA’s and RD’s do if Trump wins? There will be no shelter available to protect the tender minds from the heat of the Trump win.

The bodies will be stacked deep in those tiny safe rooms, brains leaking out of their ears.
The school will have to make up the tuition loss by selling tours.

Laissez le bon temps rouler

Never has a retaliation been so truly exhibited as it is at Mizzou as the suffer a whopping budget shortfall for their idiot position on Political Correctness.

Mizzou Facing A Huge Budget Shortfall After Political Correctness Fiasco

So, after the whole mess surrounding the poop swastika; instances of harassment that were allegedly racially-motivated, though unverifiable since they occurred off campus; and a professor who was charged with assaulting a student reporter at protests over said events has a caused a budget shortfall at the University of Missouri. I know, totally shocking, right? (via Daily Caller):

The University of Missouri (MU) is losing about 1500 students and is facing a huge $32 million budget shortfall four months after it attracted national attention as the site of massive race-based campus protests.“I am writing to you today to confirm that we project a very significant budget shortfall due to an unexpected sharp decline in first-year enrollments and student retention this coming fall. I wish I had better news,” said MU interim chancellor Hank Foley in a Wednesday letter to school staff [March 9] that was obtained by Fox Sports.

According to Foley’s letter, MU will have about 1500 fewer students in fall 2016 compared to last year, an unexpected drop that is in turn causing a big dip in the school’s tuition income.

Because of the abrupt and unexpected nature of the shortfall, Foley is taking immediate and severe steps to fix the situation: The school budget is being cut 5 percent across the board, all hiring is being frozen (barring exceptional circumstances), and annual raises have been canceled. He has also announced a new, more intensive effort to recruit potential Mizzou students by phone, email, and even via Skype.

Even with all these measures, Foley anticipates MU having a deficit of about $10 million, which he said would be made up using the school’s reserve funds.

One doubts that the State will go after the administration for their costing the school these funds. They should. Some terminations and some punishment in the faculty ranks would improve the school’s image.

Cleaning up the requirements for admission would go far in eliminating persons unable to do college level work. this should take place in EVERY college in America and finally reduce the Federal loan money. Perhaps the faculty would like to do real work for a change.

The professor who was charged with assault, Melissa Click, escaped further legal proceedings when she agreed to a year’s probation and community service. She has since penned piece a piece in The Washington Post about her conduct during the protests, where she wrote “If you have had any exposure to American media in the last four months, you know the quick decision I made to stand with the students, you’ve seen my inexperience with public protests.” As National Review’s Kat Timpf noted saying that you don’t know how journalism works in a public space, specifically a protest, then that alone should be grounds for dismissal. Click was fired in February. She views herself as the “scapegoat,” being used “to distract from larger campus issues.”

As you can see, political correctness, besides being mind-numbingly stupid and authoritarianism masked under the guise of diversity, is also incredibly expensive. Has Mizzou learned from this public relations disaster? Nope. They’re requiring “diversity intensive” courses as a prerequisite for graduation.

Oh yes, this mandatory course in diversity will make all the difference in the World at that “Higher Institute of Lower Learning”.

Snowflakes hiding from the world

They were terrified, offended, hurt and crying. However they will survive in the real world is a question they are going to have to confront, the poor things.

Pitt Students ‘In Tears’ and Feeling ‘Unsafe’ After Milo Yiannopoulos Event

Pitt studentsThe University of Pittsburgh’s Student Government Board held a public meeting on Tuesday to discuss the traumatizing visit the night before from “dangerous” homosexual and Breitbart Tech Editor Milo Yiannopoulos, during which students described themselves as feeling “hurt” and “unsafe.”

“During his talk, Yiannopoulos called students who believe in a gender wage gap ‘idiots,’ declared the Black Lives Matter movement a ‘supremacy’ group, while feminists are ‘man-haters,’” according to the student paper The Pitt News, prompting a handful of twenty-something-year olds to feel upset.

“Just because we have to be neutral with our funding doesn’t mean we’re personally neutral,” announced board member Jack Heidecker at the meeting. “I hurt yesterday, too.”

“So many of us shared in our pain. I felt I was in danger, and I felt so many people in that room were in danger,” proclaimed Marcus Robinson, student and president of the Pittsburgh Rainbow Alliance. Robinson also suggested that councilors should have been provided in another room to protect students who felt “traumatized” by Yiannopoulos’s opinions.

“This is more than hurt feelings, this is about real violence. We know that the violence against marginalized groups happens every day in this country,” claimed social work and urban studies major Claire Matway. “That so many people walked out of that [event] feeling in literal physical danger is not alright.”

President of the College Republicans and fellow student Tim Nerozzi responded to the complaints by proclaiming, “I’m not here to rain on your parade. We put a trigger warning on our fliers for the event. We never claimed it would be a family friendly or a politically correct lecture.”

“I do realize that some people were genuinely hurt, and I’m not going to ignore that, but free speech should not trump safety,” he said. “We need to see the school work around that.” [snip]

My knee spasms violently at the thought of these hot house flowers withering under that blast of “FREE SPEECH” howling through and around the auditorium.
Why, they may never recover from such exposure.
It may be incumbent upon the University to make sure that after graduation, there is sheltered transportation from the school to their parents basement where they can retire in solitude for the rest of their lives.

That Nasty “White Privilege”

We need to examine this purported evil, which is only now thrust in front of freshman students as they pass through the gates on their chosen Alma Mater. Before that, these individuals lived in blissful ignorance of the sorrows stapled to the human race by “White Privilege”.

Smart testThe manifold afflictions fervently pointed out by the Professors and Student Organizations quickly flummox the young and empty skulls. Expressed are the woes of the minority students suppressed from getting an education equal to those just entering the racist school.
One might ask what the minority students are doing there but that, in itself, is construed as ‘racist’.

The question still remains, what has ‘White Privilege’ done to humanity? What evil lurks in the hearts of the White Race?  Why not enumerate some of the foul baggage that this affliction injected into the planet’s living system and sterilize them with exposure to the light of day.

We have to start somewhere, let us start here with the “White Privilege” evil contributions to the destruction of Mankind:

  • Science: White Privilege discovered genetics, antibiotics, antiseptics, safe modern surgery, blood transfusions, open-heart surgery, heart transplants, nuclear medicine, X-rays, and provided the schools that gave people like Dr Ben Carson a place to become great.
  • Education: White Privilege built the universities where Thomas Sowell and Walter E. Williams  studied and teach, two well-known individuals holding Ph.D’s and tenure. Both are economists and African American. Look up their backgrounds.
  • Law: Thurgood Marshall and Clarence Thomas got degrees from places that were founded by White Privilege. There are more but those two names should be recognizable by the fools hating White Privilege.
  • Locomotion: Cars, trains, planes, rockets and large ships all produced by White Privilege. You can’t get from here to there with out putting your black ass on something invented by White Privilege.
  • Communication: Telephone, telegraph, computer, cell phone, television, all invented by White Privilege.
  • Firearms and Gunpowder: After the Chinese (hardly a minority)   invented gunpowder, the Europeans made the first fire arms. Americans made the first rifled barrel, repeating rifle and the Colt revolver. The Germans made the revolver about the same time, the semi-auto followed shortly.

This isn’t to say that there are no minorities working in any of these fields. There are. Those individuals weren’t and aren’t standing around with the jive shit of “Black Lives Matter” or the “New Black Panthers”. They’re too busy getting high grades, getting into Grad school and lining that six figure salary without sweating like pigs on a hot BB court. Also they don’t buy a lot of bling and go bankrupt. They aren’t voting for Hillary or Bernie either.

In fact turkeys, you’re in school fight now because of White Privilege. If White Privilege stops paying taxes for that “FREE” school, where would you be? Yup, digging yams with a stick and dying from drinking bad water and childbirth.

Here’s the deal. you can either get with the “White Privilege”  program get a good degree and buy some nice shoes or you can spend lots of money or steal Air Jordan’s and sit around drinking muddy water.

As Mr T said, “Fool, you have a choice.”

 

Illegal Immigration

Where do these pointy headed university dorks, who never did a day’s work in their lives, get off telling us we have to call  fencinghopping illegals undocumented CITIZENS!

Public College Insists Illegals Be Referred To As ‘Citizens’

The University of Maryland is sponsoring a poster campaign encouraging students to refer to illegal immigrants as “undocumented citizens.”

JoseThe inaccurate term, first noted by Campus Reform, is promoted by the school’s “Inclusive Language Campaign,” which is throwing up posters around campus to encourage the use of friendlier language.

UMD’s Multicultural Involvement and Community Advocacy office, an official organ of the university, is running the campaign. The posters tell students that “words have power” and people should be cautious, lest they offend people with the terms they use.

“Would you say [illegal alien] if you knew I am an undocumented citizen?” the poster asks passersby.

You’re damn right I would! And I’d turn you in to ICE. Just as soon as we get rid of that balloon in the White House, there will be a change in policy.

There won’t be taxpayer money squandered on lawbreakers. You want an education, get it in your own country.
Jobs will have to be done by Americans or they can figure out how to eat with no money.

All in a day’s work

A group of third, fourth and fifth graders accompanied by two female teachers went on a field trip to the local race track to learn about thoroughbred horses and the sporting industry.

During the tour some of the children wanted to go to the toilet so it was decided that the girls would go with one teacher and the boys would go with the other.

As the teacher assigned to the boys waited outside the men’s toilet, one of the boys came out and told her he couldn’t reach the urinal. Having no choice, she went inside and began hoisting up the little boys up by their armpits.

As she lifted one, she couldn’t help but notice that he was unusually well endowed for an elementary school child.

” I guess you must be in the fifth,” she said.

“No ma’am” he replied, “I’m in the seventh, riding Silver Arrow. Thanks for the lift anyhow.”
