UNC-CH Education prof: Western Civilization is “Euro-centric”

Good one, genius:

“It’s not that we shouldn’t be offering classes that deal with Western civilization, but we also need to be concerned about other perspectives and other cultures,” said Dwight Rogers, professor in the School of Education. “(The Pope Foundation’s) lens is very much a Euro-centric, Western civilization focus, and they don’t seem to be open to other ways of knowing.”

Hmm. I suppose this must be that insightful criticism they talk about! So donors shouldn’t give targeted donations because it’s unfair to the other departments? Or is this a unique standard only for the Popes again? I don’t recall outrage over the Williamson grant for being “homo-centric” and not “open to other ways,” &c.

Was this hostile mockery? Gosh, I so hope not …
