11/23/16 I am very upset about our colleges including my college Colgate University. I feel I must post a letter I sent and put on facebook.
"I wish everyone at Colgate a very happy holiday season. However, as a Colgate Alumni with heightened emotions, I too am grieving. I am grieving because my college canceled classes and exams so students could deal with heightened emotions due to the Trump victory. Give me a break! A better solution would have been to make no changes and let the students learn to persevere in their day to day obligations under many situations. I am grieving for the state of education in the U.S. If our educators dealt with the subjects they are supposed to teach and didn’t deal with ideology, we would achieve a much better outcome. College is a time when students should listen, learn, and grow not go to a safe place so they can stagnate. Our spending on education globally is the highest and our result in rankings is abysmal. I fear for the students and all that has not been done for them. Until such time that I see a change in the University’s approach that does not coddle its students, I will no longer be contributing to the Annual Giving Fund which I have done every year since I graduated. I got a wonderful well rounded education at Colgate for which I am very proud and thankful.
