MY doctorate was from the School of Education. I have read much of what the University sends me and find that much of it is in error, based on my analysis. I can begin with your piece on [President Lee C. Bollinger's] Inauguration Day 1997 and the president's declaration that one should have the capacity to suspend "one's own beliefs." Have you and your staff done this? You discuss democracy, and yet if you read Plato's Republic, an old requirement in the social sciences, one would learn that democracy as such does not work. Here in America, for various reasons, some of which I approve, the majority is forced to comply as our freedoms are eroded.
The University preaches diversity in admissions but does not understand that it cannot work in the long run. The problems it has created are known to you, and they will get worse. Our evolving society will prove this regardless of what a few individuals would prefer it to be.
