standardized testsA college professor allowing students to skip finals to hold an anti-Trump rally is symptomatic of America's declining education system, says a longtime culture analyst.

Approximately 20 students at Arizona State University were permitted to protest Donald Trump for his supposed "human rights" violations, and that permission came from Professor Angeles Maldonado.

The students are part of Maldonado's course, "Global Politics of Human Rights," website Heat Street reported.

"This is better than a final," one student said of the protest. 

"Kill Trump" graffiti"Part of the reason that I'm so distressed about this particular incident," observes Janice Crouse, "is that it's acknowledged pretty widely in the United States and around the world that we are slipping academically in comparison to all the other nations that are advanced nations today."

Crouse says it was disingenuous of Maldonado to state it was her duty to support the decision to protest, when in fact she allowed the students to "shirk" their academic duties. 

"That's just PC kind of talk," she says, "and it doesn't have a place in the academic community."

As long as they were protesting, the students also focused on homosexual rights, women's rights, Black Lives Matter and the prison system, according to Heat Street.
