Wokeness has no place in higher education

Tennessee can no longer force faculty, students or applicants to prove their commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion (“How my state’s getting DEI out of higher ed,” New York Post, May 19). That’s the best news I’ve heard in a long time.

All that should matter is merit.  Politics has no place there. Yet until Tennessee acted, excellence played too large a role. I hope that other states will follow in Tennessee’s footsteps.
