Great books have no place in college today

There was a time when an undergraduate liberal arts degree meant something.  But with the exception of a handful of schools, courses based on the Great Books have been eliminated because they are seen as promoting a white-supremacist version of history and culture (“ ‘Rescuing Socrates’ Review: Great Books, Greatly Missed,” The Wall Street Journal, Nov. 8).

The losers are students who graduate unable to think clearly and write persuasively.  That’s because they’ve majored in such slush subjects as gender studies.  They’ve been exposed to nothing that remotely qualifies as an education.  Instead, they’ve been indoctrinated.
