The "Brave New" American Schools (via @LizBlaine on twitter)

This is (to use a Progressive wuss word) CHILLING!
"'The first step toward "cultural competence," says the task group, is for future teachers to recognize – and confess – their own bigotry. Anyone familiar with the re-education camps of China's Cultural Revolution will recognize the modus operandi,' she said"
"What if some aspiring teachers resist this effort at thought control and object to parroting back an ideological line as a condition of future employment?" she posed. "The task group has Orwellian plans for such rebels: The U, it says, must 'develop clear steps and procedures for working with nonperforming students, including a remediation plan.'"
"Further, the letter noted, 'the college in its proposal promises to start screening its applicants to make sure they have the proper "commitments" and "dispositions."'"
"'Here's the kicker,' FIRE said in its report. 'The college even realizes that its efforts to impose such a severe ideological litmus test may be unconstitutional.'"
"The letter cited a proposal to consult with the university's own lawyers."
