#1 In other news and updates on Diversity, be sure to view the cadet 'Raised Fist' West Point story.

#2 America has it's own problems with higher education.
Starting with artificially high tuition. These public schools have no incentive to manage their finances responsibly, effectively eliminating the middle class from being financially able to afford an education. In the Americans' place they enroll up to 20% foreign students, 50% in the medical colleges. It's pity a kid with a 30 ACT, +4.0 GPA, honors student can't get into The Ohio State University.

#4 It's not like 'diversity' hasn't had a negative impact here either.

#5 It's pity a kid with a 30 ACT, +4.0 GPA, honors student can't get into The Ohio State University.

That's because many of the kids with 4.4 GPAs are sensibly choosing Ohio State in these troubled times, instead of spending $40-60,000/year for a private university. The trailing daughters chose the University of Cincinnati instead of Ohio State or a name private school, because Ohio State offered National Merit Scholars only free tuition and an honours program, while UC offered them the honours program, a full ride, plus money to buy a good computer. Both preferred to save their college funds for a name graduate school later, because it's the grad school that matters... and grad school is more expensive.

#8 Anytime you force institutions (or businesses) to bring in less qualified people for any reason, you will get a declined quality product as the standards will have to slip to keep the failure rate from becoming unsustainable.

#9 U.of C. recently had an issue reporting on fracking that they didn't want to release because it didn't fit the narrative. All in all..not a bad school for the money. Almost went there since that's my hometown area...Went to Miami University (yes..not the one in Fl.) instead. Tuition was $3K/year..just shows my age. Go Bearcats!

#10 TW, my point is that the universities are accepting more foreign students in the place of locals in order to increase revenue and keep the prices high.

20 years ago honor students with strong ACT's would have no problem getting into any state school, or private school for that matter.
