I don't want any of my money going towards supporting this kind of madness.

Oh nice. Now the students are demanding no homework, and that they be allowed to turn their papers in late with no penalty.
And looks like the boss is going to capitulate.
Can you believe this ****?
No I really can't. They are letting the inmates run the asylum. It's like they have brainwashed the students to destroy the country so well they are actually trying to destroy their brainwashing centers before going out into the world. I am not sure if all colleges are like this, but this is shaping up to be a huge problem over the next decade.
The fact they even have the nerve to ask for their homework while shutting down the college shows an incredible lack of awareness.

That being said...I did hear the complaint of no blacks in faculty in the vid.. which I do find odd and unbalanced.
I find it untrue.
I glanced through the first several pages of their faculty page to see just what they were complaining about. Not everyone has a photo (maybe 60-70%?) but there are several black faculty members I saw. There are also Asians and Muslims.
You want more black professors? Get an education degree and be a black professor!
State lawmakers in Washington are fed up with the antics of Evergreen State College, and plan to introduce legislation Thursday to privatize the left-leaning institution.
Led by Republican State Rep. Matt Manweller, the legislators are considering revoking $24 million in state funding, but vow that financial aid will remain available to students.
Evergreen State students held a protest recently after a liberal professor questioned plans to ask white students and faculty to leave campus during a day of diversity programming.
Evergreen State College in Washington state was abruptly closed Thursday morning after officials received a "direct threat to campus safety."
"All are asked to leave campus or return to residence halls for instructions," said a statement on the college's website.
Around 10:30 a.m. Thursday morning Evergreen officials were notified that TCOMM 911 had received a call from an individual claiming to be armed and en route to Evergreen's Olympia campus. The call was made from an unknown telephone number to a regular business line.
Upon notification from TCOMM 911, and on the advice of law enforcement, President George Bridges made the cautionary decision to close campus. Evergreen students, staff, and faculty members were notified of the closure via an emergency text system, mass email, and a campus-wide speaker system.
We've been watching this bed of coals in this thread. Some of us saw smoke. Now it looks like there's flame. I hope someone puts it out quickly.
"I'm on my way to Evergreen University now with a .44 magnum," said the caller. "I'm to execute as many people on that campus as I can get ahold of. You have that? What's going on here you communist scumbag town?"
Sen. Phil Fortunato, R-Auburn, has introduced Senate Bill 5946, which would phase out state funding for The Evergreen State College and ultimately sell the institution.
Fortunato said the controversy over the request for a white professor to leave campus that has embroiled Evergreen in a national media frenzy, reveals a dysfunctional state institution incapable of keeping order or protecting free speech.
The legislation would transition Evergreen into a private institution and would seek to sell college assets at fair market value. A stipulation to the sale would be that the buyer would have to run the college as a four-year institution of higher education.
Fortunato’s bill is a companion to HB 2221, sponsored by Rep. Matt Manweller, R-Ellensburg.
