I will be picking specifically on George Washington University, but this applies to many, many others.
George Washington University no longer requires U.S. history course for history majors. Think about that. A history major with ZERO required knowledge of American History. The school’s newspaper, The Hatchet, recently said faculty framed the new policy as a way to “recruit students” and “better reflect a globalizing world.” Speaking of recruitment, George Washington University recently hired former recruiter for al Qaeda as homeland security expert.
As I said, I was not just picking on George Washington University. One-third of the nation’s most prestigious schools, which makes a U.S. history course optional for students who call History, their field of vocation.
American Colleges and Universities, making themselves irrelevant.
