Neglecting the basics: Post-secondary schools are becoming more and more like governments
by Anthony Furey
There is no better example of why our post-secondary education system is broken than a recent story out of University of Toronto.
The Varsity, my alma mater's student publication, has a piece headlined "University heeds call for more prayer space." And it goes downhill from there.
Emmanuel College — a Christian college within U of T — has just opened a Muslim prayer space and "ablutions facility." That's a place for Muslims to wash various parts of the body before prayer. So this is no classroom set aside for quick prayer. This is the real deal.
