A Key Lesson in Education Policy: You Don’t Make Peace with Termites

A Key Lesson in Education Policy: You Don’t Make Peace with Termites

A Key Lesson in Education Policy: You Don’t Make Peace with Termites 

For most of the last century, the “progressives” have been taking over the nation’s education system at every level. Pick any teacher, professor, or administrator and the chances are high that he or she is utterly dedicated to the Leftist project of replacing our liberal (in the true sense of the word) society with their vision of a properly regulated one. By controlling education, the Leftists implant the ideas they favor into students (including collectivism, egalitarianism, and acceptance of authority) while at the same time repressing ones that work against them (such as individualism, skepticism of authority, and belief in the spontaneous order of liberty).

Due to the phenomenal success of that project, school and college curricula are saturated with hostility to Western civilization. Teachers are trained in “education schools” that promote failed pedagogical concepts while at the same time demonizing anything that’s remotely conservative or libertarian. Overwhelmingly, the people who work in state education bureaucracies have been steeped in leftist ideology. They are far less concerned about how well students learn to read, write, and do math than with turning them into zealous advocates for their pet causes.

Liberal Students, Academics Seek to Revoke Conservatives’ Honorary Degrees

Liberal Students, Academics Seek to Revoke Conservatives’ Honorary Degrees

Multiple universities across the country have rescinded honorary degrees, which are given to recognize the achievements of individuals who were not students at the university, from prominent members of the Trump administration.

Last month, Syracuse University put wheels in motion to rescind an honorary degree from former New York City mayor and lawyer to former President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, Business Insider reported. The university has not revoked an honorary degree in its 152-year history.

Giuliani argued that there was widespread election fraud during the 2020 election. He faced a criminal probe in Georgia regarding the presidential election results and appeared before a grand jury in August.

However, university spokesperson Sarah Scalese confirmed to Business Insider that a process has now been adopted.

David Bruen, Student Association president, told Business Insider that while the process has been slow, Giuliani’s degree could be revoked by spring. The decision now lies with the Senate Committee on Honorary Degrees.

Georgia Residents Increasingly Trust Emergency Physicians


In rural Georgia, when you need immediate essential healthcare services, and you don’t have the time to drive miles upon miles to seek care — many residents are finding comfort and respect for hospitals that have invested in physicians and technology for their emergency medicine departments in their local communities.   

Life or Death Situation

In emergency situations, timelines for care can escalate quickly… it can even be a matter of life and death in some cases. In rural areas, challenges are compounded as historically those are the areas within the state where distance to an emergency room is often significant, and then staffing the rural ER department is traditionally difficult as well.  The problem is that if that wait or drive is too long, a patient may not find the right care in time. In most emergency situations, time is of the essence. There is no time to waste. 

Rural Areas Widely Underserved

Adding to the healthcare complexity, only about 8% of emergency physicians practice in rural areas. The majority of ER professionals serve in urban and/or suburban locations. 

As a result, many large hospital systems in urban areas often have a lot of staffing depth with practitioners, and also typically keep job opportunities open to help offset the physician churn.  By comparison, rural areas simply have a harder time with staffing based on population challenges, and proximity to large metropolitan cities such as Atlanta.  

Partnering to Fill the Need, and Meet the Demand

Georgian College Joins Esport Canada Post-Secondary


Georgian College is pleased to announce that it has joined Esport Canada Post-Secondary (ECPS). This opportunity provides a valuable connection with like-minded schools to learn best practices and share student success ideas to grow esports at the college and across other institutions.
As an independent advisory board, Esport Canada Post-Secondary is the national voice for the development of programs whose goals are to elevate postsecondary esports while advocating on their behalf.
“We’re very proud to be a part of the inaugural group of postsecondary schools supporting Canadian collegiate esports through Esport Canada,” said Carol Meissner, Georgian College’s Manager, Esports and faculty member in Business and Management. “It’s important for schools to support a wide variety of their students’ interests and while our CyberGrizzlies esports club is fostering a love for esports on our campus, it’s equally important to encourage the growth of esports everywhere.”
Georgian students started the CyberGrizzlies esports club in 2018. The club, which operates both in person and online, focuses on community building through esports and gaming, hosts fun game nights, and competes in tournaments. It offers students leadership opportunities to grow and supports competitive students – a key focus for the new relationship – as more schools are added with varsity esports.
The club has over 1,000 students and alumni in the Discord membership which is where everyone meets online. It’s currently the largest student club at the college.
Meissner added esports is more than just a club.

Georgian Applauds Three-Year Degree Announcement


Today’s announcement by Minister of Colleges and Universities Jill Dunlop to allow colleges to offer three-year degrees is welcome news at Georgian College. The provincial government’s plans to expand career-focused degree programs at Ontario public colleges will provide new opportunities, choice and more academic programming options for postsecondary students.
“I applaud today’s announcement, our government listened to the sector and understands this decision will be better for students, employers and our economic vitality,” said Dr. MaryLynn West-Moynes, President and CEO, Georgian College. “College three-year degrees will enhance graduates’ employment outcomes and earnings, as well as prepare a more diverse, robust and qualified labour force.”
Expanding the degree programs at colleges will fulfil the growing demand among employers for graduates with more highly specialized qualifications.
In anticipation of this announcement, Georgian has started to prepare new three-year degrees in hospitality and business. The development process includes working closely with industry to ensure a three-year degree credential is a good match for labour market needs. It also includes creating seamless pathways from existing diploma programs to degree programs. The new degrees could be available by 2024.
This new category of postsecondary credential will provide future students with more choice and flexibility in what and how they choose to study. New degree programs may be offered online only, as hybrid, or as GC Flex, where you attend class when and where it’s convenient for you, depending on the nature of the program.
