This week, we talked Affirmative Action, money in education, and conservatives in education. The question of how to improve racial relations is always a tricky one, and I thought Nicole and Jordan pulled off the discussion very well for this touchy subject. We then touched on the Kochs’ donations and ensuing veto power (and subsequent removal of said veto power) at FSU concerning the hiring process for professors. This led into a discussion about conservatives in academia in general. No surprise: college campuses are usually liberal. A relatively similar argument as the first half: what, if anything, should we be doing to promote diversity– in this case, diversity of opinion– in college? The questions were big– too big to cover in a short hour-long show, so maybe we’ll do a special on it sometime, but for now, the debate rages on.
I digress: catch a replay of the show after the break. Keep it locked.
