‘Snowflake’ schools pre­pare no one

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - VIC­TO­RIA CAR­NEY McLean, Vir­ginia

How ironic was The Wash­ing­ton Times’ jux­ta­po­si­tion of two ar­ti­cles in yes­ter­day’s edi­tion (“The Halls of Ivy,” In­side the Belt­way; “Trump to Use Ex­ec­u­tive Or­der to Push ‘Hire Amer­i­can,’”). Maybe when uni­ver­si­ties like Ari­zona State start of­fer­ing, teach­ing and test­ing stu­dents on courses that ac­tu­ally pre­pare them for a fu­ture in the work world in­stead of wast­ing par­ents’ and tax­pay­ers’ money on coun­try-club liv­ing with a side help­ing of “snowflake” pro­tec­tion, per­haps then the H-1B visa pro­gram will be­come ex­tinct. If I were the CEO of a com­pany look­ing to hire peo­ple with the skill sets needed to im­prove my busi­ness, these stu­dents would be at the bottom of my list.
