Title: Wisconsin students demand free tuition for black students

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Black students should be offered free tuition and housing at the University of Wisconsin-Madison because blacks were legally barred from education during slavery and UW-Madison remains out of reach for black students today, the student government said Wednesday.

The Associated Students of Madison said in a resolution that students from suburban high schools are overrepresented and that the consideration of ACT and SAT scores in applications restricts opportunities for the poor and thus upholds "white supremacy." Race relations have been a contentious issue at the Wisconsin's flagship campus for months and the university has proposed some measures aimed at improving diversity.

"The university's rhetoric suggests that it is committed to diversity and inclusion, so this legislation compels the university to move towards action - which is imperative," the resolution's author, ASM Student Council Rep. Tyriek Mack, said in a statement. "If no one challenges the university's empty promises, then the racial composition will remain stagnant."

The resolution demands free access to the university for all black people, including former inmates. That means free tuition, free housing and no fees, Mack said. It says 10 percent of donations to the university should go toward bolstering financial aid and studying the feasibility of test-optional and geographically weighted admissions.

Noting that the proportion of black students at UW-Madison has grown from 11 percent to 15 percent over the last decade, university spokeswoman Meredith McGlone said the school supports the spirit of the resolution but that it's unclear whether the methods it proposes are legal or the best way to accomplish those goals.

Chancellor Rebecca Blank has proposed giving first-generation transfers from two-year schools free tuition for a year, contingent on funding in the upcoming state budget, and a recent $10 million donation will be invested in expanding the Chancellor's Scholarship Program, which supports minorities, McGlone said.

ACT and SAT scores are not the only factor in UW admissions, but their inclusion is required under regent policy, McGlone said.

Last spring, pictures of swastikas and Adolf Hitler were posted on a Jewish student's door, someone hurled racial slurs and spat at a black student in a dorm, and police arrested a black student during class for spray-painting anti-racist messages on campus buildings. Minority students spent the semester pressuring administrators for change.

Last month, a student who was imprisoned for burning down two black churches tried to start a white supremacist group on campus. He abandoned his efforts following intense backlash, but the student government criticized Blank for saying he had a legal right to express his views.

The university in August proposed building a black cultural center, introducing discussions about social differences and expanding ethnic studies courses and diversity training for all faculty and staff.

In-state undergraduate tuition has been frozen for four years and Gov. Scott Walker has proposed a 5 percent tuition cut for resident undergraduates in the second year of the upcoming state budget. Representatives of the Legislature's budget-writing committee haven't responded to an email Thursday seeking comment.

Mike Mikalsen, an aide to state Sen. Steve Nass, a Republican and one of UW's most outspoken critics, called ASM a waste of student fees.

No. It restricts opportunities for the stupid.

What good is free education if they flunk out? Then what? Force the college to give them a degree just for trying? Then force companies to hire them?

None of them will flunk out. They will all graduate,even if they only show up for classes occasionally,and never take tests.

Then they get their degree,and use that as a basis to apply for a job. If it is a Civil Service job,they get it based on the degree and race.

If they apply to a corporation,they are hired or they sue based on racial discrimination,which is something no modern company can survive being sued for.

The debate about how to raise the level of education among the disadvantaged misses the point if substandard students are allowed into universities. The point of higher education is to lift the IQ of the nation not reduce it. Basic education may be a right but higher education is a privilege that should not be wasted on the stupid, the lazy and the incompetent.

You don't raise IQ by education. It is what it is,not something that can be developed.

Don't be ridiculous. The world is changing on a daily basis,and has probably changed in more radical ways in the last 50 years than it has in the previous 2000 years.

Still,IQ is something a child is born with. It's not something they gained by reading or going to school. What they get from reading advanced textbooks is personal verification of their own theories,and sometimes a hint on a possibility they can turn into a new reality.

People with really high IQ's have the ability to absorb MUCH more information and understand it on a level high enough to use current knowledge as a stepping stone to future knowledge,but you are either born with that ability or you never have it.

If you have ever been around a flesh and blood human genius,you would know this. I went to school with a kid that makes Shelton Cooper from The Big Bang Theory on tv seem to be mildly retarded by comparison. The kid actually built a remote control robot for the high school science fair. In 1962. He MIGHT have been 14 at the time. He went from being a high school graduate at age 16 to getting a PHD in Physics from UNC in less than 2 years. Mostly because he just challenged the BS and MS degrees,and started out working towards his doctorate. I am just stating a fact when I say that I have a pretty high IQ,but I have the IQ of a snail compared to him. Probably the loneliest kid I ever met because this was before the computer age,and he literally had no peers to talk with until he hit UNC. Even then I doubt he had any peers,but he did have people to talk with that could mostly understand what he was talking about.

I was told that he immediately went to work for NASA after graduation. There was damn little he needed to be taught other than to stop doing math problems in his head and look both ways before crossing a street because he already KNEW it. He was BORN knowing it.

His little sister was pretty damn bright,too. Not in his league,but probably smarter than 90 percent of the population. We are talking Mensa-level smart for both of them while they were still children.

The funny part is pretty much everybody in that small rural school kind of adopted Freddy as a pet,and someone would always take him by the hand and lead him from one class to another as the bells rang,and someone would walk him home after school,or to the library where his mother worked because he literally couldn't be trusted to cross the street by himself. Too distracted doing math problems in his head to be bothered to look to see if any cars were coming when crossing the street. Nobody picked on him at all or tried to push him around. I have literally seen people get in front of him and say "Stop,Freddy!",and he would stand still while they tied his shoelaces for him. He could have tied them himself if he had ever taken the time to notice they were untied,and he cared enough to spend the time to tie them,but it just wasn't important enough to him to make him break his train of thought long enough to concentrate on something so trivial. He was pretty passive,and I don't know of a single time he ever got an attitude or protested being treated like a slow child. He just couldn't be bothered to waste the time to care.

The closest I know of him being harassed in any way was one hot high school girl was determined to jump his bones,and would do stuff like hide in a door recess,and then jump out in front of him to make full body contact as he walked by with his head down. She told me once she was going to jump his bones if it was the last thing she ever did,but AFAIK,she never had any luck even getting him to recognize her.

There is no such thing as someone with a high IQ that is uneducated because smart people are curious people.

It depends on how you measure IQ. Some IQ tests put emphasis on vocabulary. Menorizing words and definitions will produce an apparent increase in IQ. Other tests put emphasis on capacity to analyze and resolve intricate problems.

Only in a negative way,such as due to illness or injury affecting your ability to think.

Other than that your IQ will change in no significant way from the time you are an adult to the time you die.
