• Agreed. The real world is heavily competitive. If you end up being a pushover as an adult, you are much less likely to succeed in any career.

      The thing with this school is that they justify it by saying that those who don't get it feel much better about themselves. Craziness.

      Too many people in 2019 don't understand the difference between "equal opportunity" and "gift economy." Imagine a world in which anyone can train to become a surgeon. That's nice. Now imagine a world where anyone can simply be a surgeon. That's horrible.

      Not only that, I'd be able to walk on the field and demand to put in as starting quarterback with the NY Giants (I could probably do better than Eli anyway) AND get paid the same. Or, I could walk onto a movie set and demand to be paid as an actor in a starring role (I wonder how many Hollywood libtards would like that). We have equality of opportunity in this country. Equality of outcome is most certainly a bad idea.

      Its not just that, though. Being able to put that on your resume is impressive. But not having it is encouraging mediocrity.
    • Archie Bunker
      What "they" are trying to teach is that no one should be outstanding. As you say, Linda; mediocrity is the goal. If one person stands out of the crowd, they had to have done it by stepping on others.

      Don't forget the imaginary white privilege!
  • Ain't no different than dumbing down from dumbows 😏
