UMKC Buyouts Cut Kangaroo Professors

Harsh times at the city college continue as social justice debate gives way to economic reality. In the Midwest there's a STEEP DECLINE IN HIGHER EDUCATION ENROLLMENT given that the promise of gainful employment to pay off massive student debt is sketchy at best. Moreover, since most people learn everything they know from Youtube how-to videos nowadays . . . The payoff of a college degree is a tougher sell. Here's the result of this tough situation:

UMKC faces large personnel changes following faculty buyout

UMKC may be losing some of its most senior faculty members this year.Announced earlier this year, the entire UM system has offered tenured faculty members over the age of 62 a contract buyout. According to these metrics, this plan could impact 112 members at UMKC.

Go check out the UMKC curriculum on queer culture. It’s hilarious the types of classes you can take there.

Dead on the money.

Send your kid to college, he comes home a rabid radical, with no skills, an education commensurate with a 1960's 7th grader's grasp of history, math and English, plus 150K in debt.

He/She will be able to explain the many acronyms that relate to pre-op trannies, gays, labtgdhsnsieniueosanfoaehrfw9rfiueslaojfeie et al and have acquired, if he is white, the necessary ethnomasochistic, self hatred that beta boys sport like a fuckin Congressional Medal Of Honor.

They should change the name to the "Hamish Bowles" Met Gala Every Day School Of Arts.

Colleges now, reflect Identity Politics and the quest for appearance.

Appearance is a light year more important than substance and is in fact, the fulfillment of aspiration.

Affirmative Action and Identity Politics having forced the lowering of academic standards into a sewer of malodorous, meandering searches for some new instructional gravitas, the Professors/Administrators were unconsciously forced into diversion that distracted the new generation of idiots they were 'skoolin'.

"Hey!!! I got it!!! If we can't teach them Long Division, then why not just tell them that the reason they suck so bad, is because whitey is responsible for sun spots making the climate hotter and, you know what, fuck it, let's go all in, because only idiots are going to buy into this shit and that is all we have left now, blame him for everything! We will get dumb white people to enroll along with everyone else that we already have to enroll by virtue of legislation. What the fuck?!?!?! Let's have a few laughs while we are at it and turn them all into trannies who hate Christians, Free Speech and love Islamic terrorists!!"

Try getting the first Job Interview without a Bachelors Degree, folks!

Like it or not, College is now the requirement that a High School Diploma was thirty years ago, if your kid wants a future that doesn't involve french fries, a name tag, or never moving out of your basement.

Don't condemn your kids to a life of posing on Tony's at 2:30 am.

No I won't hire a college kid especially one who goes to liberal thug schools like UMKC. Hire a college kid and they can't even count change back to a customer, that's not counting the fact that they have zero common sense. They are educated idiots!

“Ebersole does note the issue is largely the fault of the state legislature, which has repeatedly cut funding for higher education.”
The fault lies at the feet of the administration for pushing the fluffy gender studies and other classes that contain no substance which would allow one to function at a literate level in the real world.

Sucks they're cutting out the History department instead of just shutting down women studies and queer stuff that is just all a fad that will be gone in the next 10 years or so
