UNC hosted its “Politics of Inclusion” conference on higher education Sept. 10-13. The campus Web site is here.
This may not be timely, but I just read something about it that’s pretty interesting.
As can be expected, the conference was a very biased, elitist event. Read here. No one with a differing view was invited…except for one: Congresswoman Virginia Foxx.
She “was asked to participate in a panel discussion on the role of the federal government in assisting poorer families to get their children into college. She surprised the assembly by stating that under the U.S. Constitution, the federal government has no role to play in education at all. Later she told the organizers of the conference that it would have been better to have been more inclusive themselves by inviting more people who don’t accept the establishment views on higher education.”
Way to go representative Foxx. Here’s a holla to my district, District 5.
