Evergreen State College President Gives into Demands of Leftist Student Protesters

Quote:

Although Evergreen President George Bridges announced that progressive professor Bret Weinstein wouldn’t be suspended, Bridges announced that he would comply with the long list of demands that the students brought before him.

“I’m George Bridges, I use he/him pronouns,” he began, before stating that he would comply with most of the student protester’s demands.

Bridges went as far to say that he would increase the school’s efforts to fight discrimination in response to the demand that Weinstein be suspended for refusing to participate in the school’s annual “Day of Absence,” in which, this year, all white community members were asked to leave campus for the day.

“We must increase our capacity to investigate instances of alleged discrimination,” Bridges said. “Therefore, we have decided to increase the college’s Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity Officer to full-time today. In addition, if we need to hire outside investigators, we will.”

Bridges praised his students, calling them “courageous” for voicing their concerns. He expressed a commitment to meeting most of their demands, claiming that “together we can reach them.”

This is addressed in here but for those of you that don't want to go through the entire show the confrontation between the teacher and students is around the 4min mark and the students and the president is around 10min

Another reason why the Department of Education should only focus on yanking accreditation from these universities.

There is no way this is a sustainable model.

Something has to give.

I would imagine that many of these degrees will become a hinderance

No parenting.

Latchkey, daycare, single mothers and welfare babies.

The state model of collectivism "raising" of children.

The long game of socialism.
