Will Universities Ever Admit They Were Wrong About COVID Policy?

“Former White House adviser Dr. Scott Atlas, the Robert Wesson Senior Fellow in health policy at Stanford University’s Hoover Institute, wrote an excellent essay recently in the Wall Street Journal. In it, he raises a vital question for all students, parents, faculty, and the broader public, as to how our nation’s university system became, along with major media, the most aggressive proponent and distributor of medical ideology and biosecurity policy.  University behavior continues to be directed by the CDC and WHO, and it appears that university administration will continue its commitment to a consensus posture toward the COVID phenomenon, until another institution that it considers authoritative tells it otherwise.  That is not likely to happen.”

  1. I believe the US + state & local Gov, now directly invest more than the sum of tuition – which they also backstop. The universities just aren’t biting the hand that feeds them. I plan to sue for the return of my youngest daughters tuition. She was wise enough to not get the jab, but she was unable to graduate.
