Politics is always part of education — and life
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!
