Unlike Mexicans, Asians really do have conservative values of hard work, delayed gratification, scholarship and appreciation of capitalism. Over half of Asians have a bachelor’s degree or higher, while the national rate is 30 percent for a BA.
Asians are the highest-income, best-educated tribe in America as a result of their industriousness. Why are so many [...]
Taxpayer-supported state colleges are supposed to provide a higher education at a reasonable cost to the young people who are residents. That’s why in-state students get lower subsidized tuition than outsiders.
But lately in California, not so much. The state’s university system has forgotten its mission to educate California kids in part because it is low [...]
Recent days have been witness to the depressing spectacle of a courageous women’s rights campaigner being denied an academic award as a result of Muslim agitation: Brandeis University Withdraws Honor for Ayaan Hirsi Ali after CAIR Propaganda.
Interestingly, Brandeis University has a noble motto on its seal that suggests commitment to academic freedom: “Truth even unto [...]
I heard a radio version of this story on Friday. The idea is to take a bunch of Mexican immigrants and teach them computer coding to liberate them from the tomato fields and get swell jobs in tech. They are getting a bachelor’s degree in computer science in three years, even though many start not [...]
In 1996, Californians voted with a 54 percent majority to prohibit racial preferences via Proposition 209. Race hucksters have been squawking ever since, and certain institutions, particularly the University of California, have come up with a string of squirrelly work-arounds, such as “holistic” admissions.
The latest liberal revolt against achievement is SCA5, a bill passed in [...]
The hopes of the Romeike family of homeschoolers to remain in America seemed to have crashed and burned on Monday when the Supreme Court declined to take their asylum case, but on Tuesday the DHS intervened to allow them to stay indefinitely as long as they remain law abiding.
It’s rare to see the government act [...]
Liberals think it’s just mean to insist that immigrants learn English; they would rather Americans be forced to speak Spanish. So in places like Mexifornia, powerful forces nudge the society toward acceptance of the invaders’ language (aka cultural surrender), maybe because bilingualism has been such a famous failure for Canada, and liberals like to employ [...]
At a time when belt-tightening is a necessary strategy for many states, the number bankrolling educations for illegal aliens is increasing: now 15 states are wasting taxpayer funds on foreigners when many citizens could use a hand.
Do these states have too much money? Or perhaps their priorities are all screwed up, in the liberal style.
On Friday, I heard a radio report about “migrant” farmworkers who live in taxpayer-subsidized housing in Watsonville, one of 24 such facilities in California. The existence of specific welfare for foreign nationals is part of the “welcoming” attitude the state has toward foreigners, which liberals regard as a sign of their moral superiority.
The immigration status [...]
In Mexifornia, the growing population of hispanic kids is still doing poorly in school compared with the palefaces. A recent meditation from the Associated Press implies that the problem is Low Expectations, neatly pinning the blame on teachers and society as a whole. No mention of non-scholarly cultures at home.
However, Asian kids who attend [...]
Montreal recently experienced some discussion about Muslim diversity after a photo appeared showing burqa creatures shepherding a group of Canadian pre-schoolers:
Why would any parent want their child taught by a masked person? You might as well have robots as daycare personnel. Pre-schoolers have smaller vocabularies than adults and rely more on subtle facial communication. Basic [...]
A couple times last week, Rush Limbaugh explored an interesting byway of political history related to the Kennedy assassination, an event which marked its 50th anniversary on Friday. The idea was that that the left could not accept the fact that an individual communist, Lee Harvey Oswald, murdered the Democrat President, and as a result, [...]
