Ivy League University Admits to Being Racist – Betsy Devos Immediately Takes Action
President Trump has not been slack in combating racism in our country contrary to what the mainstream media may be telling you.
Just recently we saw him sign a bill mandating that institutions do away with teaching critical race theory. I don’t think people grasp how important this really is.
But not just that, now the U.S. Department of Education is examining whether Princeton University complied with federal anti-discrimination legislation following Princeton University President Christopher L. Eisgruber’s admission of “systematic racism” within the Ivy League facility’s education program.
The university was put under the spotlight after Prof. Eisgruber vowed to combat racism, suggesting it had been “embedded” within Princeton’s education program for years.
A letter by Prof. Eisgruber on 2nd September indicated the university excluded certain marginalized groups, including women, people of color, Jews and others. The facility director’s admission of racism raised concerns as to whether Princeton was in breach of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos cited Prof. Eisgruber’s own words when launching the probe which will investigate whether the “admitted racism” of the institution counters claims and assurances given to the public that Princeton does not racially discriminate between different groups. Taxpayer funds will need to be repaid by Princeton if it is found to be in violation of the Program Participation Agreement for nondiscrimination and the Higher Education Act.
Princeton University is the recipient of funds worth tens of millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars. The university’s president collects $300 million per annum in federal research grants as well as millions in student financial aid. Funds will need to be returned if the facility is found to be in breach of anti-racism laws.
The university was critical of the government’s decision to investigate it for racism, disagreeing that it had breached the existing law. It stated it is looking forward to explaining how it has held the “highest ideals”.
If you are a frequent reader, then you know how I feel about the public education system. I feel very similar about college universities as well.
