The Battle for Diversity in Higher Education

Diversity in higher education has been defined in terms of race, gender and class.

Supporters say this is a triumph over white male privilege and western cultural imperialism.

They claim there is an underlying system of oppression against minorities in western education.

But critics argue that such “identity politics” has led to a new tyranny of political correctness, groupthink and indoctrination that undermines the university’s goal of intellectual diversity and academic freedom.

Who is right?

Where does the truth lie?
Or is truth a social construct created in the interest of the ruling class?
What is the purpose of education?

This documentary explores the battlefield of this raging war of cultural beliefs and educational standards going on in the humanities and social sciences in higher education all around the country.
