It’s revealing that government-run schools fight to stay closed, while most businesses — private schools, restaurants, hair salons, gyms, etc., fight to be allowed to open.
As early as 1899, students of Paul Laurence Dunbar High School, a black public school in Washington, D.C., scored higher on citywide tests than any of the city’s white schools. From its founding in 1870 to 1955, most of its graduates went off to college.
Everyone else pays more because colleges get tax breaks, government grants, and government loans.

Why do U.S. students persistently score lower than students from other nations on international tests?
The horrors of Nazism, Stalinism, and Maoism did not begin in the ’20s, ’30s and ’40s. Those horrors were the result of a long evolution of ideas leading to a consolidation of power in the central government in the quest for “social justice.”
Instead of forcing banks out of the student loan business, we should get government out of it.

Brainwashing our youngsters is a serious matter. The people responsible for the Department of Education’s proposal ought to be summarily fired.
I’m wondering when the black community will demand an end to an educational environment that condemns so many youngsters to mediocrity.
Education bureaucrats love working in a monopoly where they are basically guaranteed jobs.
Spending four or more years in a politically correct college and accumulating tens of thousands of dollars in debt is not the only road to a successful life.
As long as universities continue to misrepresent how they use philanthropic gifts, philanthropists will remain wary of the high potential for misuse that accompanies large donations.
What is the price tag for “free” college and the elimination of college debt?
What has been allowed to happen to cripple black academic excellence?
When you send your youngster off to college, you might not mind that they will have to walk on eggshells, respect taboos, snitch on fellow students for politically incorrect jokes and learn to use ad hominem arguments as a means to attack ideas they find...
America, a country where even poor people live longer and better lives than almost anyone in history, has become a place where spoiled children paying $60,000 tuition consider themselves “victims.”
Three major problems faced by America’s colleges and universities — and their solutions.
The 1215 Magna Carta limited the power of central government and it forced a reigning monarch to grant his English subjects rights. It laid the foundations for limited constitutional governments, an idea offensive to most leftists.
Although it may be difficult today for American socialist students to study abroad in places like Cuba or North Korea, they could lobby U.S. officials to facilitate it.
As a result of leftist indoctrination, many college students graduate illiterate, innumerate and resistant to understanding.
The first step toward any solution is for the American people to be aware of academic fraud that occurs at every level of education. Federal prosecutors have charged more than 50 people involved in cheating and bribery in order to get their children admitted to some...
What today’s academics write, and what journals treat as neutral science, tends to reinforce only one side of the political spectrum.
How can a college criticize the hoaxers but revere ridiculous journals that publish nonsense? The real “hoax” is on students who pay thousands of dollars for useless degrees in fields that end in “studies.”
Most students have not been exposed before to the concept of laissez-faire capitalism and the central role the protection of individual rights play in it.
