Buffalo schools fail kids when teaching that all White people play part in systemic racism: Rufo - Fox News

Buffalo schools have adopted a curriculum that pushes the controversial idea that all White people perpetuate systemic racism, while 80% of its students fail to reach proficiency in reading and writing, an editor said Wednesday.  City Journal editor Chris Rufo, during an appearance on "The Ingraham Angle," said the "diversity czar" of Buffalo public schools was caught on tape saying she believes that America's sickness leads some White people to believe Black people are less than human.  One of the district's instructional materials also includes the assertion that "all White people play a part in perpetuating systemic racism." He said the narrative of system racism has also spread to schools across the country, which shifts attention away from "their own abysmal failure to educate kids."

UW–Madison launches new online degrees in business and marketplace studies through UW–Madison Online - University of Wisconsin-Madison

The University of Wisconsin–Madison is adding four more degrees to UW–Madison Online — its portfolio of online undergraduate degrees — in an ongoing effort to increase access for nontraditional students and meet demands of employers across the state and beyond.

Applications are now open for these fully online degree programs:

"At a time when online education has been more important than ever, we're leveraging technology and our top-tier faculty and programs to open up the university to more people who are seeking a degree that they can use to build a better future for themselves," says UW–Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank.

Blank emphasizes the importance of strengthening educational outcomes and increasing access to underrepresented populations, adding that the university must meet the needs of a growing audience of nontraditional students in Wisconsin who can't attend in person and want to balance work, family or other obligations.

UW–Madison Provost John Karl Scholz says the addition of online degrees not only removes barriers to a college education for more Wisconsin students, but the degrees carry the university's excellence in teaching and learning.

"I am excited to see UW–Madison extend its reach to new audiences who welcome the challenges and opportunities provided by a world-class, online Badger education in these vital business and human ecology programs," Scholz says.

Three online business degrees will be offered through the Wisconsin School of Business (WSB), ranked 7th in public undergraduate business programs across the nation. The BBA in Management is a flexible option that prepares people for leadership roles in a variety of growing industries. Students graduating with the BBA in Human Resources will be equipped to a play a crucial role in motivating, developing and retaining an organization's employees. A BBA in Marketing will allow graduates to meet an employer's need to successfully market products and services.

"These new online business degrees respond to the dynamic forces of today's digital economy," says WSB Dean Vallabh "Samba" Sambamurthy. "As the needs of industry continually evolve, the Wisconsin School of Business is committed to creating agile learning opportunities and extending access to business education. These degrees will position students to launch meaningful careers with a solid foundation in business fundamentals."

The degree in Consumer Behavior & Marketplace Studies, preparing people to innovate and lead a rapidly evolving industry, will be offered through the highly regarded School of Human Ecology (SoHE). SoHE pioneered and continues to offer UW–Madison Online's first degree, the BS in Personal Finance.

"At the School of Human Ecology, we work collaboratively to understand the complex relationships among people and their everyday environments, such as the marketplace," says SoHE Dean Soyeon Shim. "With our second fully online degree through UW–Madison Online, our expert instructors will continue to prepare students to address complex problems in an evolving world."

UW–Madison Online degrees are designed for people who have earned an associate degree or have some college credit. Eligible students can ask questions and apply at online.wisc.edu. Students can start the program in fall 2021, spring 2022, summer 2022 and beyond. UW–Madison Online degrees are designed to be flexible, so students can choose their course load and keep career and family commitments.

UW–Madison is not new to the online arena. For more than 20 years, the university has offered online master's degrees and certificates. The Professional Degrees and Certificates program currently has more than 80 certificates, master's and doctoral degrees available as flexible options for working adults—many of them online. Online enrollments for these programs have grown more than 77 percent over the past five years. UW–Madison Online hopes to enroll several thousand nontraditional undergraduate students in the next decade.

"During a challenging year, our university continues to move forward in building strong online bachelor's degree programs that will serve Wisconsin students, families and the business community so we can grow a brighter future together," Blank says.

Penn State launches online graduate program in taxation - Penn State News

Posted: 16 Feb 2021 08:51 AM PST

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — A new graduate program from Penn State can help tax professionals gain the expert knowledge they need to advise corporate and individual clients on their tax obligations.

The new graduate taxation program is being offered exclusively online through Penn State World Campus in collaboration with the internationally ranked, AACSB-accredited Penn State Smeal College of Business.

The program consists of two credentials, a 30-credit master's in taxation with courses that explore the foundations of taxation and tax structures in public and private entities and a nine-credit graduate certificate that can serve as a springboard to the master's degree.

Penn State is accepting applications for the master's degree and graduate certificate for admission in the University's fall semester, which starts in August.

"This foundational knowledge is essential for tax professionals who are looking to specialize or advance to a higher-level position in their careers," said Larry Friedken, clinical associate professor of accounting and the director of the taxation program. "We are excited to open this new program so that it can help students reach their goals."

The courses in taxation will be taught by the faculty of the Department of Accounting in the Smeal College of Business. Friedken said the courses present case analyses that use real-world examples so students can learn to solve the kinds of issues they could expect to encounter when working with clients.

In the courses, students will learn about developing tax planning strategies to lower their clients' tax burden and increase profit, how the IRS interprets and applies tax law, conducting research and analyzing laws to make recommendations.

Students can choose electives in topics such as business analytics, business administration, management consulting and more.

The master's degree includes a capstone course in which students will conduct research and perform analyses for a culminating project.

Students who complete their degree can be qualified to work in positions such as tax consultant, tax manager or tax director.

In addition, students may be able to apply credits toward their 150-credit requirement for certified public accountant licensure.

The graduate certificate in taxation gives students a chance to explore the foundational topics in taxation before they commit to a master's degree. Students may be able to apply the credits from the certificate toward the master's degree if they apply and are accepted to the program.

These two new programs—an MJ in Energy Law and an MJ in Environmental Law—expand the longstanding partnership between Tulane University Law School and Everspring.

Courses in the Environmental Law program are aimed at those professionals working in regulated entities, regulatory bodies or advocacy groups who need contemporary training in evolving regulations on all sides of environmental issues.

"With a rapidly expanding body of laws at the national, state and local levels, these new MJs in Energy Law and Environmental Law help working professionals advance their careers in dynamic and demanding fields," said Beth Hollenberg, co-founder and president of Everspring.
