Quote of the Day – Critical Pedagogy Edition

Zombie visits a lecture on “Teaching as a Subversive Activity” which one commenter accurately assesses as:

“Should we indoctrinate students with leftist ideologies?” and only after five minutes of talking in circles eventually concludes “Yes.”

But that’s not the QotD. This is:

I am concluding forty years of engineering, primarily energy infrastructure, $2.5 Bn in nukes (24), fossil fuel power plants (48) and decades assessing advanced technologies (what is coming, the technical barriers, costs, etc.). These educational practices are alien to me in my ancient education. Engineering and hard sciences (which means truth) demands rigorous disciplined thinking. There is the right answer to the home work, and wrong answers.

Today, in climate change, nuclear safety, fracking, the current technologies controversies, I continually read many articles which can be summarized as, “Cesium 131 will kill everybody in Japan because I hate GE.” I find it irrational.

Read the rest. And see above.
