Senator Warren’s “Pretty Awful” Education Plan

by Chester E. Finn Jr.via EducationNext
Friday, October 25, 2019

Senator Elizabeth Warren is famous for hurling at least one major plan against every policy issue and societal problem you ever heard of—or hadn’t. It’s true that a lot of them make my head ache, some of them turn my stomach, and practically none seem likely to get enacted during her lifetime, even were she to win the Oval Office. Still, her plans often contain provocative ideas, not all of them bad.

Can That Plan, Senator Warren!

by Chester E. Finn Jr.via Flypaper (Fordham Education Blog)
Wednesday, October 23, 2019

Senator Elizabeth Warren is famous for hurling at least one major plan against every policy issue and societal problem you ever heard of—or hadn’t. It’s true that a lot of them make my head ache, some of them turn my stomach, and practically none seem likely to get enacted during her lifetime, even were she to win the Oval Office. Still, her plans often contain provocative ideas, not all of them bad. At least she’s thinking about big, substantive matters and going after them with big, substantive proposals. That’s a nontrivial part of what a presidential candidate—or president—should do.

‘Liberal Bias’ Debate On College Campuses May Encourage Open Discourse

quoting Timothy Garton Ashvia The Daily Orange
Monday, October 21, 2019

For over a year, students on campus were working to get a Young Americans for Freedom chapter approved. The Young Americans for Freedom is a nationwide political organization of college students that is based on conservative values. Back in February, the university rejected the proposed YAF chapter for its lack of a faculty adviser and its requirement that members agree to the “superiority” of the U.S. constitution. Some students have alleged that liberal bias directly impacted the group’s efforts to become a recognized student organization, which it now is.
