"MSU’s NatSci Council on Diversity and Community"

Huh.

We were touring the physics department yesterday and I glanced over a lot of posters in the hallways (briefly).  They were all about physics (nearly as I could tell).  Not a one was about diversity and community.  There was a guest speaker last night over there talking about the death of the universe, which could have been interesting, but I didn't go.

I asked my friend where all the Asian students were, I didn't see that many out walking, and it was a gorgeous day and he said "Studying".

I was encouraging my daughter to attend a presentation on Dartmouth.
Problem?  It was on Saturday and it is a 2-hour round-trip to get there and back - so 3 hours out of her day.
She said "no thanks."  Why?  She has too much studying to do to prepare for her math test the following Tuesday.

I never would have been studying all afternoon on a Saturday when in high school.
She has plenty of self-discipline, but also a school culture where that is simply what you are expected to do.
And people wonder why Asians are "so smart." They're not.  They are hard working and disciplined.

NO WHITES ALLOWED: Wake Forest University To Hold Segregated Faculty Meetings

–For staff who identify as staff of color ONLY: Monday, May 6 at 4:00 pm in ZSR Room 477

The school has already been cowed into bending a knee to the angry social justice mon. Nathan O. Hatch, the President of the school, offered black students a segregated lounge and kitchen space in March. 

Training in unconscious bias and other ways to enhance a sense of belonging among all on campus will also be formally incorporated into student leader training

https://www.thecollegefix.com/university-hosts-no-whites-allowed-faculty-and-staff-listening-sessions-to-promote-inclusivity/

Indeed when a white female peer told them to relax and take a joke, she received death threats. Meanwhile, administrators tried to appease the coalition by launching an investigation into the post. Clearly that didn’t work.

The coalition contends black students at Wake Forest “are facing the same problems encountered by the first black student admitted” to the university way back in 1962.
One professor at the school who asked for anonymity said the situation is absurd right now.“It’s hard to respond to the ridiculous accusation that Wake Forest tolerates or encourages ‘white supremacy’ and inflicts ‘trauma on students of color,'” the professor said in an email to The Fix. “I question whether it is worth responding to people who use such hyperbolic and hysterical rhetoric. Though the more you placate them, the more they escalate their rhetoric and demands.”

I guess MLK is discredited nowadays since he was a passionate "Easter follower."
He uses way too much scripture in his speeches for the left to hold him up anymore.

Asian PARENTS often are far more engaged in the academic success of their children than "we" are.

I know I was pretty lax about it myself, but at times a bit overwhelmed with three to raise on my own.  They seemed to be doing pretty well without my interventions.  I wanted them to be independent as soon as possible.

Had dinner at a Thai restaurant tonight with a friend of mine and his girlfriend.
My daughter insisted she had to get back home to do more homework and write a paper.
My wife, daughter and son left at 7:30 so that she could fit in another 3 hours of homework / writing.
I stayed behind and finished the bottle of wine with my friend.

I don't want to hear a word about how my daughter was "privileged" because she was white/asian.
She's been working her a$$ off and deserves everything that she's worked for.
She works harder than 99% of people in high school, but will be turned down in a lot of places because, "she doesn't fit the profile of what we're looking for."

Thanks! I hope so!
She does go to a good school....


The ISA tests Mathematics and English Reading and Writing and provides specific information about student, class and year level performance. The assessments are also correlated to the PISA (Project for International Student Assessment) tests where 15 year old students from OECD countries participate in a series of tests to measure mathematical and other literacies.



Year 10                                  CIS      All Other Schools    Other Like Schools*
Mathematical Literacy              660                555                      556
Reading                                  595                524                      547

My two kids both got liberal arts degrees and both have moved into a more technical area.  Neither excelled in college particularly, they did well, but they look good apparently in today's hiring climate.  One is a "senior web designer" and likes her job.  The other just got a major promotion and is making quite a bit of money now.

Was just taking some training where everyone else was an engineer.

Even if you don't have stellar scores and grades and STEM majors, you can still do very well today if you master the basics.

All cities have a street named for MLK.  The Left will fight to change these in 20 years.  MLK's message is the message of the Right, not the Left.

A better "tactic" would be to change what he stated and believed.

I never cared about color/nationality or sex when interviewing people. I looked for the most qualified to do the job, period.

As a note from what you have written here and in the past your daughter will do fine and she will find a place that is the best fit for her talents. 

I suspect her drive to excel is a positive trait she learned from her parents. Good job!

President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

Thanks.
She's determined to be vet - where admittance rates are even lower than for undergraduates.

But for her International Baccalaureate, she's taking English, Mandarin and Math at the Standard Level and Economics, Biology & Chemistry at the High Level (she's required to take 3 at each level).

She a native English speaker, fluent in Mandarin (spoken & written), conversational in Cantonese and has a working knowledge of Spanish and Korean (she's learning Korean "for fun").

In terms of languages, she is NOT like her old man at all! (I'm useless <g>).
