Pol­i­tics is al­ways part of ed­u­ca­tion — and life

Baltimore Sun - - FROM PAGE ONE - Dolores Or­lando, Ti­mo­nium

Af­ter Alex Robin­son grad­u­ates “in peace” with­out hear­ing from Betsy DeVos, who else will he want to shut down to give her peace (“UB stu­dent: Let us grad­u­ate in peace,” Sept. 12)? Her field is com­mu­ni­ca­tions, for heaven’s sake — com­mu­ni­ca­tions! What makes her think that pol­i­tics and po­lit­i­cal move­ments have noth­ing to do with ed­u­ca­tion?

Like the writer, I, too, was mar­ried when I grad­u­ated from Goucher Col­lege, the only grand­mother in the class of 1999. I, too, saw the ad­vent of this present gen­er­a­tion which fo­cuses on “di­ver­sity.” Where is it? Is di­ver­sity only di­ver­sity when think­ing is on your side and then racism when it takes an­other view? You can’t have it both ways or can you? Mr. Robin­son, may the Lord give you peace. Con­grat­u­la­tions on your last se­mes­ter and happy grad­u­a­tion!
