One of the hottest culture wars today falls under the umbrella of education. Put simply, many Americans are just not happy with the direction schools are going in taking up lesson plans that are politically charged, rather than focused just on educating young people.
Numerous schools going down this route say it’s for the best and they’re creating a better world. However, the lesson plans that embrace critical race theory and other similar doctrines are widely perceived as divisive and unnecessary.
Sadly, this isn’t stopping schools like Georgetown University from moving forward with controversial new courses, according to Breitbart News.
What’s Happening With Georgetown?
Once the new semester begins at Georgetown University, students will have to take classes that pertain to diversity and social justice. Slavery, imperialism, and intersectionality politics will also be discussed in these upcoming classes.
There’s more, though. Not only will Georgetown students have to take this course, but they’ll also be assigned “common vocabulary” words to use when they’re discussing these types of matters.
Thank god my kid changed mind on wanting to go to @Georgetown University . The libtards have absolutely gone insane there . On top of this , every student has to pay into a fund that supposedly gets paid out to relatives of slaves who were sold to come up with the cash to start

Finally, this new mandatory course will also get into themes of power, anti-racism, oppression, and privilege, which directly veers into the territory of critical race theory.
A Grim Future For Higher Education
For years on end now, there’s been a notable drop in the number of folks who are attending colleges and universities after they finish high school.
Some of the reasons documented for this include skepticism regarding the true value of a college degree, the high costs of attaining higher education, and the amount of time it takes to get one’s credentials.

Courses like the ones Georgetown University committed to certainly aren’t inspiring more people to take out loans or otherwise pay for higher education.
If colleges and universities continue to embrace these sorts of lesson plans, they should anticipate further declines in their enrollment numbers going forward.
