Enrollment drops at schools known for ‘social justice warfare’

Universities known for being hotbeds of campus protest and liberal activism are struggling with declining enrollments and budget shortfalls, and higher education analysts say that’s no coincidence.

Take Oberlin College. According to a document leaked to The Oberlin Review, the school’s student newspaper, the small liberal arts college famous for social justice hoaxes has had trouble attracting and retaining students, missing this year’s enrollment mark by 80 and racking up a $5 million budget deficit in the process.

William A. Jacobson, a professor at Cornell Law School who runs the Legal Insurrection blog, said the “most obvious culprit” in Oberlin’s dwindling admissions is “relentless social justice warfare.”

“Social justice warfare at Oberlin has been more intense and sustained over a longer period of time than at most schools, and has come to define Oberlin in the media,” Mr. Jacobson said. “The resulting mockery and derision, even in liberal publications, has damaged the Oberlin brand.”

Surveys support the notion that, in the era of Trump, conservatives have become more skeptical about the value of a college degree.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why in the name of sam hill did social justice get conflated with "social warfare"?!?

Whatever happened to peaceful ways to achieve social justice?!? Did they just go out with the Whoopie cushion and the dribble glass?!?

And somewhere in a just heaven, Mohatma Gandhi is crying his eyes out!!!
