When We Say “College,” We Don’t Mean You…
Sigh. The New York Times strikes again. This time it’s with a four-part colloquy of important people discussing “why are colleges so selective?”
How is someone at a community college supposed to read the question “why are colleges so selective?”
b. as a direct slap in the face
c. as yet another indication of just how provincial the New York Times is
d. all of the above
To explain the Times’ thinking, I’ll trot out my old friend, the syllogism. Colleges are selective. Community colleges are not selective. Therefore, community colleges are not colleges.
