Elite U no good for u

From the Wall Street Journal:

On one side of the stage at a maximum-security prison here sat three men incarcerated for violent crimes.

On the other were three undergraduates from Harvard College.

The inmate were required to argue for a position with which they strongly disagreed: Resolved: “Public schools in the United States should have the ability to deny enrollment to undocumented students.”

After an hour of fast-moving debate on Friday, the judges rendered their verdict.

The inmates won.

Not really surprising if we consider that college campuses today seem focused on limiting allowable disagreement among those who can afford to attend. See Greg Lukianoff‘s Unlearning Liberty

Unlearning violent crime via the prison college program teaches one resourcefulness instead.
