How Our Educational Systems Affect the Nation’s Youth
Often times, however, students in college learn strictly from one point of view, and overwhelmingly from the liberal perspective. Thomas Sowell recently wrote a column discussing the impact of one-sided educations on the nation’s youth. Rarely do universities and colleges present both sides of particular issues, and as a result, students naturally often believe exactly what they hear in the classroom. Sowell writes,
This is exactly what is happening at our universities. We receive one-sided information. The solution, Sowell proposes, is to learn from both sides of the issues. If we don’t stop this trend, he warns,
Sowell brilliantly captures the mission and purpose of NeW. We seek to address and learn the issues left off of college syllabi and educate ourselves on conservative principles. At the same time, we do not blindly accept only one perspective. Rather, we critically analyze both sides of issues to gain an educated and balanced response. NeW is working to change the current trajectory of this generation.
