Time for professors to spend a full day in the classroom or office working with students. Time to end the grants for meaningless research studies into the sex lives of lesbian pole dancers in New Jersey strip clubs and put the professors in the classroom teaching which is what they are being aid for. Time to slash the administrative bureaucracies at colleges and universities. I’m sorry but every ethnic and racial group doesn’t need it’s own diversity dean.
I’ve stopped giving money to my alma mater because it wastes it on unneeded buildings, prestigious “name” professors that don’t teach classes, guest speakers who advocate the destruction of the country, and new sports facilities that sit empty 95% of the time. I’m sorry, but there is no good reason the football team can’t practice in the stadium where games are played.
The standard of living of the average American family is in decline. It is time for the social engineers of academia, whose theories created this misery, to share the pain.
“Time for professors to spend a full day in the classroom or office working with students.”
To my everlasting shame I am an Engineering Graduate from UC Berkeley.
If it hadn’t been for the Indian grad students who functioned as teaching assistants, I would not have gotten my education. The only “notable” professor that actually taught undergraduate students was Dr. Edward Teller ( father of the H Bomb), and he taught Physics for non-physical science majors ( we called it sorority girl physics). The rest of them were too busy with their government funded research to actually do any teaching. I was there for the “free and “filthy” speech “movements. For the helicopters ( provided by Jerry the Fairy’s father) gassing the masses in Sproul Plaza and all the anti-Vietnam war protests. And I actually bought a lifetime membership in the alumni association. Which even to this day, is almost constantly fundraising for a place that, as Al Pacino stated in “ The Scent of a Woman” should have had a flamethrower taken to it fifty years ago! Where the professors make exorbitant salaries and the football coach takes home nearly $2 million a year! Yes, “higher education” is a “bubble” that needs to be broken, and the sooner the better.
