Former Vanderbilt University professor Dr Carol Swine on Friday argued that awakening classrooms were being converted into “teaching centers” at American universities.
“It’s cold in the sense that universities are collapsing. The university is over. The university is not a marketplace for ideas. It’s a teaching center,” Swain told Fox & Friends.
“And people, teachers who have come out of the university system. They’re awake. And if they have a degree in teaching education, their goal is to teach your children.”

Nicole Nealy, president and founder of Parents Defending Education, said the proposals, which prohibit critical racism, “do not go far enough.”
“We’re seen districts hiding that set of words – critical racism – from it. They say ‘we do not teach critical racism in schools’, but we know the underlying ideology is definitely being taught,” she told Fox News Digital.

Swine said parents need to rethink whether colleges are the best place for their children to study.
Swine said he was reading a book by fellow guest Pete Heggseth. “The War for the American Mind.”
“Our young people, whether they come from conservative or liberal families, are not educated.”
