Bad Signs

I know a very DEI-infected college professor who decided to fail a student in spite of "equity" concerns because the student would simply be unable to be effective working in the profession.  Obviously this realism only matters in professional fields, not Victim Studies or Postmodern Art or Colonial Historical Revisionism.  At some point, reality will start to intrude on the DEI fantasy.  Yet another reason state legislatures need to tell state universities to educate as many students in fields that will likely have jobs. Engineering, Accounting, Social Work, even Journalism.


  1. I think you might want to re-read that first sentence, it doesn't quite make sense with the rest of the post.

  2. In medicine, the number of medical students is limited each year to the number of seats in Medical school, which are limited to the number of seats for Interns, which is limited to the number of intern positions available.
    The same could be done for STEM, accounting,Law, etc.
    Except that I think it won't really change anything, the two fields that this should be done for are education and journalism, or "journalism" as I usually write it.

  3. Do you mean the student would simply NOT be able to be effective working in the profession?
