Thread: College butter “stinketh,”

    College butter “stinketh,”

    https://news.harvard.edu/gazette/sto...udent-risings/


    Harvard’s era of dissent began with the “
    Great Butter Rebellion” of 1766. It was the first known student protest on an American campus and for a time led to half the student body being suspended....

    A font of periodic student unrest. There were “rebellions” at the College in 1766, 1768, 1780, 1805, 1807, 1818, 1823, and 1834, with many smaller disturbances in between. But Harvard hardly had a monopoly on such strife. From 1760 to 1860, wrote historian David F. Allmendinger Jr., American colleges as a whole experienced “a rising curve of collective student disorder.”

    Harvard was by no means the only rowdy campus, and disturbances there could be described mostly as pranks. Undergraduates dumped buckets of water and ink on classmates suspected of being cooperative with authorities. The students spiked firewood with gunpowder, rolled stolen cannonballs down stairways, and engaged in mass chair-scraping during chapel services.
    At Yale, things were rougher. Between 1843 and 1858, students carried arms, stabbed tutors, built barricades, engaged by the hundreds in town-gown brawls, and shot two New Haven firemen to death.
    There is a lot more in the article. Very interesting. College and university "uprising", or just general brattiness and entitlement is nothing new. JA, who worked for many years at universities, said that the students have full knowledge that they pretty much have carte blanche to do as they please with little effective consequence for uncivil behaviour.

    I wonder if there's a "brattiness" difference between public vs private or Ivy League?
    For example, my 1st cousin was conservative until age 38.
    My aunt and Uncle blame it on Harvard.
    He went to a private 4 year university for his undergrad, then went to a public university for medical school.
    He worked 10 year as a MD, got tired of patients telling him what they diagnosised themselves with.
    He then went to Harvard for his PHD for hospital admin.
    He turned into a flaming lib/prog.

    My kids attend a conservative public university and still turned into snowflakes.


    I wonder if it's just an American "brattiness".
    I've never read or heard about international universities having this problem.

    There were student riots at the Sorbonne university in Paris a few decades ago.
    Just when you have the answers, the questions change.

    This is from 2 years ago...I wonder if there's a study out there "are American university students more bratty/entitled? "
    If you could get the funding it would be an insightful research project.

    University protests around the world: a fight against commercialisation

    "Origins of the Problem
    How did this generation of students, and their parents, come about? Changing views on grading and parenting are contributing factors, but there are others as well, including consumerism. The concept of the student as a consumer, which has become increasingly widespread in higher education, leads students to believe that their schools owe them something, allows students to blame someone else for their failures, and reinforces what students have learned through shopping: that the customer is always right.

    The results are not surprising. A study by researchers Philip Babcock and Mindy Marks reveals that students in 1961 averaged forty hours a week engaged in study. By 2003, however, the average hours of study had declined to twenty-seven hours per week. Richard Vedder, writing in the Chronicle of Higher Education, has argued that students don’t perceive a value in actually learning something when they can search for answers to questions of the Internet and receive information nearly instantly.

    Today’s students could be called the “Quitter Generation.” They have never learned or valued perseverance because it has been absent from all of their pursuits, except, perhaps, video games. Without a guarantee of success, students either give up or become intimidating.

    Twenge holds that the importance of the individual, for today’s students, supersedes all other concerns. Because of changing social norms, rules observed in polite society no longer apply. Members of what Twenge calls “Generation Me” do not respect other people’s comfort and are less likely than those in other generations to recognize authority. They thus have less esteem for their professors. They believe that their own perspectives are just as valid as those of any expert.

    Perhaps academia is partly at fault. The recent practice of addressing faculty members by first name, for example, perpetuates the idea that the student and the professor are equals. In this respect, faculty members might have assisted in the erosion of the dignity and authority of the professor. Faculty members also erode their own position as classroom “experts” when they dress as casually as—or more casually than—their students. Is it any wonder that students feel entitled to argue with and denigrate their professors when such a sense of equality has been established?

    The average 'student' of color has an I.Q. of 92, ten points above their average rape ape in the hood, well below that of white students turned down as too stupid to do anything but grow an unpayable student debt.
