Education is Expensive, Even for Colleges.
Steve Miller – Real Clear Investigations
Colleges Learn Costly Woke Math in Courtroom School of Hard Knocks. Article here.
As they reel from pandemic losses, colleges are racking up other costs not likely to turn up as line items on staggering tuition bills: untold millions of dollars in legal fees and settlements for allegedly violating the rights of students, professors, and applicants as schools pursue social justice causes.
Harvard’s legal costs fighting a continuing 2017 challenge to its racial admissions practices have surpassed $25 million.
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill spent more than $16.8 million by the end of 2018 and its costs have only grown as it, like Harvard, continues defending admissions allegedly favoring blacks and Hispanics over whites and Asians.
Challenges to alleged free-speech violations continue to grow. The University of California San Diego in 2019 paid nearly $1 million after a four-year court fight over its move to defund student media because of a school newspaper piece satirizing “safe spaces.”
In sexual misconduct cases where the schools lose, the average settlement imposed is $750,000, costing universities $41 million annually.
Behind the litigation: pushback against a growing “administrative bloat” of aggressive school bureaucrats, who now outnumber faculty 2 to 1 at public universities, double the ratio in the 1970s.
Biden and His Kind of America

The Appalling Moral Failure of Francis Collins
Francis Collins, Director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), has announced his intention to step down at the end of 2021 after more than 12 years heading the agency. The accolades are already rolling in. Noted evangelical political commentator David French, for example, rushed to praise Collins as “a national treasure.”
But Collins’s real legacy is anything but praiseworthy, and the tendency of figures in the faith community to ignore his real record is far from admirable. This year of all years should have made the truth about Francis Collins clear. Last month, documents were released suggesting that top NIH officials may have lied when they denied that the NIH had funded “gain of function” research in Wuhan, China, that could have resulted in a pathogen that could infect humans.
