Universities in the Future

By GotDesign
Over the past several years, there has been an increase in the number of outrageous things coming out of our colleges and universities. Probably the most glaring instance was Ward Churchill of the University of Colorado. His statement that the victims of the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center towers were all "little Eichmanns" -- referring to Nazi Adolf Eichmann (logistical mastermind of the concentration camps of Eastern Europe during World War II) -- set the nation on fire in indignation. But this notoriety led to the discovery of his various plagiaristic activities and eventual dismissal from the University of Colorado.

People like Ward Churchill draw our attention to the academic world (and it is another world) and rightly so. I came across a great article -- The Future Will Be Different! -- which comments on the frivolous activities and coursework that parade as "education" today. Definitely worth a read.
