Broke-Woke-Stroke Policies Making College Degrees Worthless, Study Shows
A new study conducted by three college professors claims a triad of policies called Broke-woke-stroke” are facilitating the rapid degradation of the quality of education students can get from American universities. Professors mark Horowitz, Anthony L. Haynor, and Kenneth Kickham surveyed over 200 professors at multiple public universities asking them questions related to the equity versus merit debate in academia today.
Horowitz and Haynor are from Seton Hall, while Kickham is from the University of Central Oklahoma. Horowitz and Haynor are both sociology professors, while Kickham is a political science professor.
The broke universities feel pressure to give students excelling grades to incentivize more students coming to their universities. This is leading to unreliable graduations for employers, who relied on their faith universities were preparing students to become functioning adult members of a work environment.
Wokeness is putting pressure on all departments to cater to a far left, anti-American ideology that trains students to become future HR filers reporting their way to unaccountable cushy jobs that don’t actually require work at all.
These people are not prepared to adjust their preferences and beliefs to fit into a plurality of others’ preferences and beliefs working towards the same goal, delivering and servicing a product to a consenting marketplace. They’re prepared to find violators of the moral code, especially if they can find ones that make them the victims of that violation, and use that scalp as currency to buy their way to the top.
The universities seem more pre-occupied with producing America-hating, capitalist-smashing entitled spoiled brats than giving our children an education that makes them stewards of their own pursuit of their own happiness and their own prosperity, as defined by them and not their Professor children masquerading as adults, willing to threaten livelihoods to assure the woketarian way.
Finally there is the stroke strategy, which comes from the woketarian doctrine, which asserts, essentially, that whiteness, maleness, cisness, and hetero-normativity invented evil and that anyone fitting outside these categories (who is also woketarian) cannot fail, for they are more noble through their oppressed lives than any of these other peoples could be.
The catastrophic result is quotas that freeze out hard-working, excelling Americans and gives seats to Americans not ready to fulfil the task they have been given. But because they fit one of the preferred identities, they get a ride that quickly turns into a nightmare for them, as they find themselves over their heads.
To combat this, the colleges implemented an extra-year strategy, giving the students an extra year to develop the remedial skills they need to truly excel in college. Well, if the goal was to actually transform lives and help whole families escape generations of poverty, that might be a solution to the problem, once you recognize it.
The narrative of woketarianism cannot be broken, so instead of getting a fix that would help the people put into these awkward situations (it’s not their fault how they got there, so let’s give them every chance to succeed once we invite them) the schools simply decided to lower the standards more, allowing more grade creep in, further degrading the usefulness for companies in relying on college degrees as a bell weather for predicting the future potential of applicants.
From legal Insurrection:
Survey respondents also perceive grade inflation. 48 percent of respondents “agree that grade inflation is a serious problem,” 33 percent “admit to reducing the rigor of their courses over the years,” and 47 percent “agree that academic standards have declined.”
As universities continue to be consumed in devouring their own tail (consuming the very foundations that make their institutions possible), the degradation of the value of degrees will force employers and entrepreneurs to find other ways to competently train their employees and themselves to provide for their families.
The ultimate destruction of the woketarain-captured education system in this country, from university to public school, can’t come fast enough.
