— University of Wisconsin student government demands free tuition for black students – AP  (DIERSEN: Why not free tuition for those whose parents do not have college degrees?  My outstanding parents never attended college. My father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma.  My mother never attended high school. Because of the aforesaid, while I was in grade school and in high school, I was not viewed as being “college material.” People were shocked that I got a score of 24 on the ACT, that I graduated in the upper 20% of my high school class, and that UIC accepted me.)

http://peoriapublicradio.org/post/college-admissions-bill-advances-illinois-house#stream/0
(FROM THE ARTICLE: An Illinois House committee has cleared a proposal that would require public universities to admit first-time freshman applicants who finish with a GPA in the top 10% of their high school’s graduating class.  The House Higher Education Committee passed the bill despite opposition from the University of Illinois and the Illinois Board of Higher Education. Democratic Rep. Andre Thapedi of Chicago sponsored the bill, saying the University of Illinois lacks diversity. The Urbana campus has 5.4% black enrollment, with higher percentages at the Chicago and Springfield campuses. University of Illinois director of state relations Jennifer Creasey says the university doesn’t believe admission criteria should be in the law. She says there are a lot of disparities on class ranking throughout the state.)

CNBC
— Trump: I fired Flynn because of what he told Pence – Jacob Pramuk  (DIERSEN: Have you been fired from a paid job, and if so, why?  Constructively, my Democrat GAO superiors fired me in 1997 when I was 49 years old by forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” because since 1988, I had been an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged GAO with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation and because I had complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and retaliation before then. My Chicago Heights Firestone Store Manager fired me in 1971 immediately after I told him that I had accepted a job offer from Oldsmobile.  Constructively, my Democrat Park Forest Post Office superiors fired me in 1969 because I could only commit to be available to work Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, Mondays, and all days that NIU was not in session.)
