DISPATCHES FROM THE EDUCATION APOCALYPSE. Public university washes away conservative group’s 9/11 chalk memorial:
“When we asked why he was destroying our tribute to the victims of 9/11, [the employee] informed us that he had been ordered to do so by the university’s Director of Facilities Maintenance, Shehadeh Abdelkarim,” Roberts said.
Roberts added the employee also told her the memorial was being erased because “there is no chalk allowed on campus.”
And there you have the epitaph of academia in the 21st century: “There is no chalk allowed on campus.”
