"As a reflection of Goddard’s individualized and transformational educational model, our commencements are intimate affairs where each student serves as her or his own valedictorian, and each class chooses its own speaker,” Goddard College Interim President Bob Kenny said in a statement. "Choosing Mumia as their commencement speaker, to me, shows how this newest group of Goddard graduates expresses their freedom to engage and think radically and critically in a world that often sets up barriers to do just that.”

Everyone is a special snowflake, everyone is a Valedictorian, and your commencement speaker is a cop-killer.

Isn't "Higher" Education wonderful?

His thesis was probably on "common core" and how wonderful it is.

I am not sure how much Goddard charges, but those students got screwed.

ETA: $15,000 a semester and that doesn't include professors. P.T. Barnum was right.

Being a graduate of Goddard, I can tell you, you choose your own curriculum, usually a Professor can structure a course for you, otherwise they hire an outside Professor, you then generate a thesis for that course, and your course of study. You do work in that course and meet with your advisor every week and discuss your findings, you self grade at the end of each semester.

It is a great program for self directed learners, there is a not quite majority that use the system to game the system. The education I received allowed me to get a masters at Yale and flirt with a Doctorate at Harvard.

You have no real idea. I spent 4 years there and while I value the education I received, many of the people were cringe worthy. Young, stupid and they already knew everything.

That right there means that college does not function in reality and any IMO diploma from there completly worthless.

Because the education is structured as a personal program...
When you have a program for 1 individual, they effectively become the only person vying for valedictorian...
I bet the quality of the students coming out of that school is lame.

It really says something about liberalism when this guy is treated as a hero.
