Buskirk, Cola – Academic Questions, 2023
Despite the warnings given to young Christian students about hedonistic college campuses, many of these students arrive at Stanford to instead find a plethora of lively Christian organizations and their nonreligious classmates often more curious than hostile. While Stanford by no means espouses Christian values, hedonism does not rule campus…

Eyring, Janet L. – Academic Questions, 2023
Politics and education have always been closely entwined, but recent interactions with colleagues in the author's field about the border crisis have convinced her that these individuals are either in complete accord with the idea of large numbers of immigrants crossing the U.S. border illegally or they are completely ignorant of the situation and…

Maranto, Robert; Bradley-Dorsey, Martha – Academic Questions, 2023
In the twenty-first century, free speech and its twin, free inquiry have increasingly come under fire, and to a far greater degree than in the 1950s, censors come from within academia. Various forms of critical theory have gained substantial influence in U.S. higher education, where adherents use their power to brand free speech and free inquiry…

George R. La Noue – Academic Questions, 2023
One of the most powerful influences in higher education today is the concept of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). Managed by an ever-growing bureaucracy and promoting a seductive, though ambiguous, message to this generation of students, DEI continues to grow on campuses. Of course what gestates on campuses doesn't stay there. DEI is now a…

John Staddon – Academic Questions, 2023
"Identity diversity" (race, gender, sexuality, etc.) makes no contribution to science argues John Staddon in this article. The evidence comes from history, anecdote, and from science itself. From Newton through Maxwell, Helmholtz, and Charles Darwin it was a homogeneity of culture, if not race, that led to the novel set of beliefs and…

Mark Adair – Academic Questions, 2023
The decline and fall of classical education signify a hidden group hatred of the tensions affiliated with the higher powers of the mind; they express social and historical tension-evasion, a thirst for inertia, and entropic decline. But isn't aversion to work ordained by entropy? The author concedes that we enrich our minds for the same reason we…

Warren Treadgold – Academic Questions, 2023
Although the new Supreme Court decision outlawing affirmative action in college admissions is constitutional, equitable, and approved by a large majority of Americans, by itself it will probably increase leftist dominance of American universities. After all, an increase in leftist dominance was the effect of the constitutional amendment outlawing…

Gillen, Andrew – Academic Questions, 2022
Although colleges receive funds from student loans, they have largely escaped accountability for their role when students take on unaffordable student loan debt. One partial exception was a set of regulations called "Gainful Employment" that sought to hold some higher education programs accountable for excessive student loan debt. If a…

La Noue, George R. – Academic Questions, 2022
In the long history of higher education, there have been many endowment gifts that have strengthened institutions and brought about profound public benefits, but there are sometimes disappointment and controversy.

Ridgley, Stanley K. – Academic Questions, 2022
"Antiracist pedagogy" is a major element of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion ideology that has found a comfortable home in the American university. But antiracist pedagogy is much more than an abstract self-evident term designed to elicit unqualified support. It has a particular meaning, content, and method, and its details are…

Sparks, Richard L. – Academic Questions, 2022
This article discusses the author's belief that the notion of a foreign language (FL) "disability" started with the a priori assumption that there is a unique disability for FL learning and an intimate connection between FL learning and learning disabilities (LD). Educators, clinicians, and researchers were largely uninterested in…

Bauer, Henry H. – Academic Questions, 2022
Commonly accepted beliefs about science are drastically different from the reality. Science is almost universally regarded--at least in developed industrial countries--as the reliable source of understanding of the material world. In fact, science is as fallible as any other human activity, influenced in similar ways by outside interests and…

La Noue, George R. – Academic Questions, 2022
This essay focuses on the evolution of the conflict over free speech rights as it has played out on campuses and in courtrooms. A review of several recent court cases reveals that the most serious threats to academic freedom may originate from within the campus community, not from outside.
