    Essex County College has fired adjunct professor Lisa Durden after she made racially insensitive comments in an interview with Tucker Carlson on Fox News, according to a new report by the Associated Press. The college’s president, Anthony Munroe, announced the decision Friday, two weeks after Durden went on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to discuss an “all-black Memorial Day celebration” hosted by a Black Lives Matter group. When asked by Carlson about the event, Durden interrupted the host, saying “boo hoo hoo. You white people are angry because you couldn’t use your white privilege card to get invited” to the Black Lives...

Another student was upset that a quote by Mr Trump that she had submitted for the yearbook was not included. The teacher who advised the yearbook team has been placed on paid leave. ... "References to and support of President Trump were involved in each of these incidents," Ms Dyer wrote in a statement published over the weekend. She added that the teacher's actions amounted to "censorship and the possible violation of First Amendment rights" to free expression....

    The University of Kansas has designated a full residence hall wing as “gender inclusive housing” for the upcoming school year, and there’s already a waiting list to live there. “It tells me we’re hitting a need,” KU Student Housing director Diana Robertson said of the allocated rooms being filled. The goal is supporting LGBTQ students and ensuring they feel comfortable and connected at KU, Robertson said. The wing, titled the Gender Inclusive Housing Community, welcomes students who are “in the process of discovering their gender identity” or who might not want to identify themselves by any gender, according to KU...

    Apparently three Philadelphia-area schools have decided they can't wait until Labor Day to start molding and shaping the young minds attached to the students who enroll there. Swarthmore, Haverford and Bryn Mawr got together to offer a “Tri-College Identity, Equity, and Social Justice Summer Institute.” As Swarthmore's pr department explains in a press release: "The Tri-College Identity, Equity and Social Justice Summer Institute is designed to help students enhance both their leadership skills and their individual/group identity issues within the context of exploring issues of gender, race, sexuality, socio-economic class, spirituality, power, and privilege. To this end, intensive workshops on...

Wall Township School Superintendent Cheryl Dyer said that the district is investigating why that image, and Trump’s name on another student’s sweater vest, were wiped out. Dyer’s office confirmed ... that an unidentified teacher was suspended pending an investigation. Mrs. Susan Parsons...

    High schools across America are being pressured to offer time off school, in-school prayer rooms, and special dietary demands by Muslim students observing the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. One campus in Brooklyn has agreed not to serve food at its prom until after sundown while another school in upstate New York is setting up prayer rooms to satisfy the demands of students who observe Ramadan. Among the Muslim groups agitating for special privileges for Muslim students are the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Muslim Student Association and Sound Vision.

    The madness surrounding Evergreen State College continues. As reported by The College Fix, last week a student “meeting” with school president George Bridges quickly turned into a profanity-laced fiasco with Bridges being told, among other things, to “shut the f*** up” and that he had the “f***ing nerve to, like, f***ing dehumanize (something).” Despite the mind-boggling degree of disrespect displayed by the activists, perhaps the most bizarre occurrence that took place is when President Bridges is instructed by students to put his hands down while speaking because it is “inappropriate” (to quote a voice heard in the video).

    Students at Evergreen State College are furious that a video documenting their anarchic behavior has been made public, The College Fix reports. The footage shows students going berserk, swearing like your mother never heard and screaming about “racist white teachers,” “white-assed administrators,” and the obligatory “black power” slogans during what was supposed to be a “meeting” between the malcontent students, college president George Bridges and other college administrators. Activists are not pleased that the embarrassing video can now be seen by the world on the internet, and they they are demanding that the “stolen” document be “taken down” by this...

    Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, who is an assistant professor in African American studies at Princeton, delivered a roughly 20 minute speech to the graduating class of 300 students at the private liberal arts college on May 20. 'The president of the United States, the most powerful politician in the world, is a racist, sexist megalomaniac,' Taylor said roughly two minutes into her speech. Taylor, who is the author of 'From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation', suggested that political activism is the reason why the federal court has struck down Trump's executive orders that restrict immigration from several Muslim-majority countries.

    The first all-female college in the United States to admit male undergraduate students who identify themselves as female officially declared a “financial emergency” earlier this week. The women’s school in dire economic straits is Mills College in Oakland, California, reports Inside Higher Ed. The board of trustees announced that Mills is currently running a $9 million yearly operating deficit. The $9 million shortfall is about 16 percent of the school’s 2017 budget of $57 million. The budgetary crisis will cause professors and administrators to lose their jobs, trustees said. Also, there is a plan in the works to restructure the...

    Patrick Ford, who graduates from UC Berkeley today with an MBA, is a standout at the Haas School of Business. Berkeley News recently talked with Ford about the origin of his mission, “Guy Talk” and other manbassador activities at Berkeley-Haas and post-graduation plans. What is a manbassador, and where did the name and idea come from? Manbassador is a more memorable name for the universal term “male ally.” A male ally is a man who works to end gender discrimination by supporting and being an advocate for women. I started noticing and caring about gender equity as an undergrad. Some...

The University of Wisconsin-Madison, Brown University and the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities are just a few colleges who placed menstruation products in their male and gender neutral bathrooms, reports the...

    A high school in North Carolina has collected all of the yearbooks that were distributed to students due to some “inappropriate” comments, including President Trump’s (in)famous phrase “Build That Wall.” The News & Observer reports the Trump quote made by a Richmond Early College High School senior was “slammed on social media by some students and others who called it racist and hurtful to classmates.” Thankfully for the school, only a smattering of the books had been given out before the “offensive” statements were noticed by Principal Tonya Waddell. The district did not provide any other examples of what was...
