Higher education reforms for 2022

Each year around this time, the staff at Center Martin put together a list of reforms and improvements that we would like to see adopted (or at least considered) in the coming year. We just published our new list.

Jenna Robinson would like the University of North Carolina system to end admission discrimination and political litmus tests when hiring faculty.

I would like colleges and universities to take seriously assessing how much or how little knowledge students are learning and implementing the required logic and argumentation courses.

Jay Schalin wants college and university boards to stop acting like potted plants and for teaching schools to teach subjects that future teachers find useful or cease to exist.

Shannon Watkins would like to make public university programs and university board meetings accessible to the public.

Ashlynn Warta hopes to see more schools adopt the Chicago Principles for Free Speech on Campus and remove “diversity” courses from their general education curricula.

Finally, Sumantra Maitra would like to see colleges fund their “diversity, equity and inclusion” bureaucracies and revive classical history studies.

George Leef is the Editorial Content Director of the James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal.
