Today in fascism: An 11-year-old black boy refusing to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance escalates to his ARREST. Yes, you read that right.

Dr. Katherine Crocker isn’t quite on hiatus Feb 17
Stop using “pipeline” as a metaphor for career paths. Stop. A ‘leaky pipeline’ supposedly leaks by accident. The glut of PhDs and adjunctification of the academy and biased nature of funding and publication success...are no accident The academy is doing what it’s built to do

When your cousin dies in prison while serving a sentence given to him for selling weed, seeing white people being praised for starting marijuana businesses makes you a special type of angry.

Lots of work to do on QEs as well. & I would be happy to chat with you about the changes we've been making to them if you're interested.

The grant report form is a model for modern science: 1. Explicitly includes , datasets, software, and educational materials as products. 2. Wants DOIs not journal names. 3. For people: requires ORCIDs, optional Twitter & GitHub handles.

I think it's both. If it was just laziness and lack of imagination (and there is plenty of this) there wouldn't be soooooo much active resistance to change.

Also - definitely seeing resistance here as well. Academics. Are. So. Conservative.

Is there a post about this system somewhere or could you share it privately? We're working on changing the process in our department and would love to learn from what has done.

All of this trend in admissions (and fellowships and scholarships) about "let's find a number so we don't have to do any thinking whatsoever" terrifies me.

It’s literally multiple hundreds of dollars to prep for, take, and send the exams to your schools. It is not a low barrier to entry. Getting rid of the GRE is a fast and easy way to improve equity in admissions (which has bias baked into it already), so why not do it?

is part of the solution. I havent seen a compelling research paper(s) to justify keeping a systemically biased test. So, why are you burning calories to save it.

Grad programs are always going to miss good students, but missing 'on average' the same students (minority, women, low income) is a structural problem that is attacking.

Baffled by a fair bit of the recent discussion. We know it is biased against UR-groups and fails to predict graduate school success. That's the baseline at this point.

oh not to mention the cost of prep books, prep courses if you need a really high score, the cost of taking a day or two off to travel to the test center but WHATEVER, guess I should acquiesce bc a White Man At Stanford has an opinion

Imagine thinking 205$ per exam, 27$ per exam sent after test day (or past 5 schools) is a low barrier to entry. 205$ alone was half of a paycheck from Walgreens.
