Once upon a time, administrators ran schools, and students worked to graduate. At least, that’s what my parents taught me.
Nowadays, it sure looks as though it’s the other way around, especially when students are calling on a university to pay reparations.
This is the latest P.C. show, and it is a show, from Notre Dame according to The College Fix:
A forum Wednesday at the University of Notre Dame featured panelists who urged the university to pay reparations to blacks and Native Americans.Panelist Savanna Morgan, a senior at Notre Dame, said black and indigenous communities have a “right” to pursue reparations at Notre Dame. These reparations are “indeed monetary,” she said, adding they are “equally psychological and symbolic.”Morgan said one of the “appropriate remedies” for Notre Dame is “taking our $13.8 billion endowment out of this one mile radius and sharing this wealth with the people Notre Dame has historically robbed of their right to a safe and secure life.”“We must acknowledge how white institutions contribute to black disadvantage and commit to the appropriate remedies,” she said.
Remedies and sharing the wealth?
Maybe Miss Morgan should explain how the reparations will be divided and who gets them. Second, she should explain why someone born in the 21st century should pay for something that happened in the 19th century and before.
Once upon a time, school administrators would shut down this nonsense and send the kids to bed. Again, the kids are running the schools, and that’s not good for learning.
