Opinion | What Is Happening at the Columbia School of Social Work? - The New York Times ... Other leading schools, like the Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy and Practice at the University of Chicago and the School of Social Work at the University of Michigan, have embraced social justice goals but without as sharp an ideological expression as Columbia ... What was once its central mission to enhance the world of social worknow follows an emphatic political statement ... If you think of slavery as the original sin of the United States, it makes sense to center that reality as part of the schools mission ... Foundations of Social Work Practice: Decolonizing Social Work ... This decolonization framework, in which people are either oppressor or oppressed, often viewed through the prism of American ideas around race, is by no means exclusive to the Columbia School of Social Work. But its application in the program illustrates the effects of the current radicalism on campus and the ways in which those ideals can shift an entire field of practice ...

A man whose council and praise was sought, treasured, and boasted about ...So when you wonder how things are as they are, how so many fucked up things are tolerated and cheered, how it's the people who object who are painted as deviant or even as The Real Racists, it's because this is a deeply fucked up culture filled with deeply fucked up people who fucking loved Henry Kissinger.
