MUThe spin doctors at U of M are working on overdrive. This latest missive went out through the MU alert system from the interim Chancellor Henry “Hank” Foley.

Message from Interim Chancellor Hank Foley

This pablum is what now serves as leadership at the university. It  is directed at one audience only and that is not the average MU parent or alum.  It is stunningly untethered from reality. If anything it should make the average parent of an MU student even more concerned about leaving their child there if leadership actually believes these statements.

Chancellor Foley brings to mind the kind of administrators Jonah Goldberg wrote about in National Review:

“No, this mess is more attributable to the fact that these administrators have such open minds their brains actually just fell out all on their own, making a wet slapping sound like an unwrapped burrito hurled at a windshield.”

Anne Gassel

Anne has been writing on MEW since 2012 and has been a citizen lobbyist on Common Core since 2013. Some day she would like to see a national Hippocratic oath for educators “I will remember that there is an art to teaching as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy and understanding are sometimes more important than policy or what the data say. My first priority is to do no harm to the children entrusted to my temporary care.”
