A Little Off-Topic...
... but I have to ask.
I read this today by a great American thinker named Victor Davis Hanson. He is a professor at Stanford. Here's what he had to say:
"The K-12 public education system is essentially wrecked. No longer can any professor expect an incoming college freshman to know what Okinawa, John Quincy Adams, Shiloh, the Parthenon, the Reformation, John Locke, the Second Amendment, or the Pythagorean Theorem is."
Do the current Columbia students and parents agree?
Moreover, can we continue to tolerate attacks on the intellectual abilities of our athletes when the so-called "smarter non-athletes" may not even know one or more of the above topics?
