Quotes of the day: On education

“A Ph.D in education is 'a valid marker' of left wing ideology in education these
days. Anyone wishing to educate children rather than indoctrinate them and
kibosh their chances in life should steer clear of any state validated educational
qualification as the left has a stranglehold on content and delivery.”
- “Teacher,’ commenting at the Spectator

“What you may be used to, if you attend [a] … university that
is committed to ‘multiculturalism’ and ‘diversity,’ is, it’s been said,
being exposed to the ‘multiculturalism’ of experiencing what it’s like to l
ive in the culture of a totalitarian country—on your own campus!—and
to the ‘diversity’ of being taught by Marxists of all races and subcultures.
That is, an environment in which no views are tolerated but those
deemed to be ‘politically correct’—correct by people who don’t know
the difference between true and false or right and wrong and often
attack the very existence of these concepts, and who are thus the last
people in the world to be in a position to judge the actual correctness of anything.”
- George Reisman, ‘The Future of Liberty
