Rutgers University is contributing to the dumbing down of society by offering a course on Beyonce. The academic standards at Rutgers must not be very high. How embarrassing for any student enrolled there who believed they were getting a quality education. There are no reports yet of parents withdrawing their children from Rutgers.
From Fox News:
The Department of Women’s and Gender Studies at Rutgers University is offering a course called “Politicizing Beyonce.”
Kevin Allred, a doctoral student who is teaching the class, tells the university’s online news site that he is using Beyonce’s career as a way to explore American race, gender and sexual politics.
The class supplements an analysis of Beyonce’s videos and lyrics with readings from Black feminists. Allred says he’s seeking to help students think more critically about media consumption.
