Chaos on campus: Students protest, call for heads to roll at schools around country

Chaos swept over college campuses around the nation Thursday, as the ousters of the embattled University of Missouri system’s president and chancellor earlier this week were followed by dozens of other student protests calling for more faculty and staff heads to roll.

A popular professor at Missouri said he resigned Wednesday after students lashed out at him for pledging to give a scheduled exam amid spiraling protests, but the university said Thursday it rejected his resignation.

The Dean of Students at Claremont McKenna College in California, Mary Spellman, resigned in a letter to the community Thursday, after some at the school called for hunger strikes over what they perceived as a lack of support for students of color.

Students at Ithaca College in New York, Yale University and Vanderbilt University in Tennessee were also calling to ax administrators, and even more campuses were pledging solidarity with the burgeoning social justice movement.

What those students want is for everyone to agree with their misguided way of thinking.If you don't agree with them then you have got to go,the constitution and the first amendment be damned. College students aren't getting educated they are being indoctrinated,nobody is allowed to think for themselves they must learn to love Big Brother. Those people forced out of their jobs must be sent to re-education centers by the thought police so they too can learn to love Big Brother.
