It’s hard not to see some of the stories that come out of our nation’s college campuses and wonder if we’re really reading a story out of a daycare.
Trigger warnings, safe spaces, and the like – it’s practically like we have a generation of students who get PTSD from reality. Those who’ve been coddled their entire lives are going to have a rough time in the real world if even college is too much for them to handle. If they’re expecting their employers to respond to demands the way their college’s administrators do, they’re going to be in for a bad time.
After the election they reacted had they just suffered a national tragedy. Hampshire College lowered their flag to half-staff (as if there was just at error attack or something), and there were countless stories of students getting time of classes to “heal” from the candidate Americans wanted to become president winning the election.
Here’s yet another story of the insanity….
As the US Herald reported:
Students at American University in Washington, D.C. are being encouraged to “escape” from the pressure of exams at areas stocked with board games, snacks and treats.
“Relax! Enjoy your food! Play games!” reads a sign guiding the 18 to 22-year-olds who are – in real life – old enough to get married, donate blood and serve in the nation’s military – to the area where they can pick up their “distress kits and sip hot cocoa.”
Another sign warns happily: “Absolutely no studying for finals, looking at flashcards or calculating grades… tolerated beyond this point.”
And how much money are people shilling out to attend that school? Just south of $50,000 a year for tuition…. plus room and board. The parents funding that must be thrilled.
Only in America can you go to college and actually come out dumber than when you went in. Thanks liberals!
