Advice for parents with university-seeking children
Posted by Viv on October 11, 2010
Sadly, I don’t think enough research is done on university policies by students or parents of students who are exploring which universities to attend. Naturally people will ask questions about academics and degree programs. However there are some rather important questions that I advise parents add to their list of questions when doing campus visits with their children.
- Have you ever employed faculty (adjunct or otherwise) who have supported and/or participated in terrorist activities?
- Do you presently employ any faculty members who support seditious actions against the government and/or solicit funding for such activities?
- Would your university ever consider hiring someone who has written books dedicated to people who have assassinated political candidates for office?
- Do any of your faculty members teach students that the U.S. Criminal Justice System is an institute designed to perpetuate black oppression?
These are just a few. I challenge you to think of others.
