Infantlizing Our College Students

December 15, 2019 Updated: December 15, 2019

In 1957, I graduated from a small state teachers’ college. Now approaching my eighty-fifth birthday, I have been and continue to be appalled by what I have been learning about the so-called education of today’s college and university students. I have been very concerned about the inadequate and sometimes inane curricula of too many schools of higher education. This dumbing-down of our children can be traced to the early school years as well.

I wish to thank Dennis Prager who has beautifully echoed my concerns in his recent piece in your paper.

We are hampering our children intellectually. Now, what can we do to solve this serious problem? Our country’s future is in jeopardy.
