EdSource: California’s Universities Providing High-Quality Academic Experience – NOT!

Not long ago, vigorous debate used to take place in universities. Now the universities have become indoctrination and propaganda distribution centers, where propaganda in the broadest sense is the technique of influencing human action by the manipulation of representations.

Today’s EdSource OpEd piece states: “for all the challenges they face, the Golden State institutions of higher learning, are providing a high quality academic experience.

EdSource describes itself as “a highly respected source of education information, research and analysis. It has emerged as the pre-eminent multimedia education news organization in California, home to the nation’s largest and most diverse public education system.”

While the OpEd piece is a reminder of California Governor Gavin Newsom’s anger as a results of Louisiana’s adoption of the Ten Commandments, what exactly is a “high-quality academic experience.?”

Not much different from social media and legacy mecia’s business model that encourages silos and monetizes hate and division.

Social Media companies, make money through advertising rather than charging each user individually. If you are not paying for the product, the product is you: The media company renting your eyeballs to its advertisers.The more users on the site, the greater the number of advertisers willing to engage them, and the more those advertisers are willing to spend. The more the inflammatory the posts, the more clicks.The more clicks, the more revenue for the social media company. It’s all about data mining. The crown jewels of a social media company is the data mining algorithm that identifies affinity groups and the traffic cop algorithm that control traffic between silos. Affinity groups aka silos, are segments of users who have expressed or demonstrated an interest in a specific topic, category, or activity on social media platforms. For example, the Hollywood Rule Of Pedophilia is in effect in social media platforms: Pedophiles go where they are welcomed and stay where they are protected and well treated. Consider social media made $11 billion in U.S. ad sales from minors in 2022.

Pedophilia is just one of thousands of affinity groups found in social media. If you are into the occult, there’s a silo for you. If you are into antiSemitism, Communism, Socialism, stsr-gazing, and so on, there are silos for you. These silos can then serve you ads designed specifically for you.

Just before the EdSources OpEd piece, Diana Lambert reported: “Public data posted by the California Department of Education has been incomplete, often outdated and occasionally inaccurate, forcing legislators to pass laws based on old data, researchers to delay inquiries and journalists to grapple with inaccurate information”

Now, consider that California ranks 43rd in education.

Compare the increase in the cost of college with the increase in the Consumer Price Index, the cost of medical care, and the cost of a new car over the last 41 years. While medical costs have risen at almost two and a half times the rate of inflation, the cost of college tuition and fees has exceeded inflation by more than four times!


Then the teachers unions, propagandists and corrupt politicians racked up $1.7 trillion in student debt worth of useless degrees.

The best part is that the most in-demand jobs in the next decade do not require a college degree.

But it is good to know that Golden State institutions are providing a high quality academic experience  – however that’s measured
