Since 2016, the UFT has been critical of the leadership of the U.S. Department of Education, provided by Betsy DeVos. However, I think we owe her a “thank you” and congratulations for taking on the political correctness scourge that has swept our colleges in the form of students being allowed — and not reprimanded by the administration — to shut down speakers they don’t like and to harass Jewish students.
She has correctly threatened to remove federal aid from these colleges that are violating common decency, as well as the First Amendment. The college administrations that permit this nonsense need a lesson in what “higher education” actually means.
