My letter from the editor for the new issue of the Seattle Central student magazine.
In a recent interview with the Central Circuit, Seattle Central President Paul Killpatrick said that higher education should be (among other things) “very democratic” and stressed the need for leaders to live up to their own standards of conduct.
This is a commendable sentiment which, as editor in chief of your student magazine, I repeat: higher education should be democratic—i.e. governed by students and staff—and leaders should be held to the same standards as anyone else.
Unfortunately, we live in a society with other priorities.
