You are what you learn

There has been quite a dust-up over a candidate for Provost at KSU.

See article here and here.

Citizens have written that if you take my tuition and tax money – I should have a say what you teach.  Imagine being limited to teach what people already know.

My take:

Society used to believe those that pursued knowledge, pursued truth, and pursued God. Society no longer pursues any of those, as they would rather repeat erroneous statements than spend time pursuing truth. And, that is why our educational system is failing. Society does not care about learning.
