“Woke” student has social media users rolling their eyes after proving one PhD program is a scam

People are slowly waking up to the dangers of the radical Left.

But they do not yet realize the depths of the rot on college campuses.

And a “woke” student just proved one PhD program is a complete scam.

A huge bubble that’s waiting to burst is the higher education bubble.

As of March 2024, Americans collectively held $1.75 trillion in student loan debt.

The cost of tuition has ballooned over the past few decades while professor salaries have flatlined.

Why college is so expensive

The reason why is because the federal government subsidizes student loans, and those loans cannot be discharged through bankruptcy.

The days of being able to pay for college with a summer job are a distant memory.

And the tuition hikes have gone toward funding a bloated administrative bureaucracy.

The number of administrators on college campuses has exploded, and the people in these positions are invariably the most “woke” people at the university.

The administrators are often to the left of the kookiest professor on campus.

And the administrators are very likely coming from Education schools, which are by far the most ideologically captured departments on college campuses.

Ed schools have the weakest scholarship, and they produce so much radical nonsense.

Activist majors

For instance, a Penn State University student in the PhD Higher Education program wrote a thesis titled, “Queer and Trans Drag Artists of Color on College Campuses(es): A Black feminist Woven Ethnography.”

Colin Wright—who has a PhD in Evolutionary Biology from Penn State, and was “canceled” for his science-based views on radical gender ideology—exposed the paper for the farce that it was.

Wright said, “The sample size of his qualitative ‘study’ was ‘5 queer and trans drag artists of color who frequently perform in colleges located in central, PA.’ The ‘research’ consisted of interviewing each drag queen twice for 1-2 hours, observing their drag performances for 2-4 hours each, collecting an ‘artifact’ from each drag queen, writing about their experience, and attending a ‘poetry writing workshop.’”

This is what passes for scholarship in Education School programs.

Wright added, “Let’s be generous and say he spent 2 hours performing actual ‘mediated writing’ on each drag queen (so 10 hours total), and the poetry writing workshop took maybe 5 hours max.  So maybe 75 hours of work for a PhD. And he was likely in the program for 5-7 years. This is what our universities are putting resources towards and producing.”

 

This graduate will likely be a future administrator at a university, or will serve as some corporate HR manager.

Ed schools are not churning out scholars; they are churning out left-wing activists.

These are activist degree mills.

Worse yet, the hard sciences have been infiltrated by activists like the one that wrote this thesis.

And people in the hard sciences have refused to stand up to the radicals.

That’s why evolutionary biologists like Wright have been vilified for holding rational views on radical transgenderism.

The federal government needs to stop subsidizing these student loans.

And if politicians want to address student loan debt, they should consider taxing the endowments of these schools.
