Musings of a Recovering Lutheran: Gettin' us a ejumakashen
O LORD, God of my salvation,
         I have cried out day and night before You.
Let my prayer come before You;
         Incline Your ear to my cry. 

Psalm 88:1-2 (NKJV)

Gettin' us a ejumakashen

Wayne State wants to drop its mathematics requirement. In its place will be a course on "diversity".

Key quote:

“We are proposing the creation of specific ‘Diversity’ courses, with students required to take one course in this designation,” said a document from the General Education Reform Committee, which is recalibrating what the university will expect from all students who earn a degree from the state university. It released the proposal in May.

The committee report said, “These courses will provide opportunities for students to explore diversity at the domestic level and consider the ways in which it intersects with real world challenges at the local, national and/or global level.”

We live in an era when Jim Crow has made an ugly comeback in the form of campus "safe spaces", so it is not surprising that mathematics is now on the chopping block. Math is hard - especially since it does not bend to the left-wing ideology that now controls many colleges and universities.

One wonders how much longer parents and taxpayers will put up with this educational malpractice.
