I admit that I some things about higher ed perplex me. I teach mathematics, and my professional thoughts are pretty much: “make sure I know the stuff and then attempt to convey it to students in the most coherent way possible. No one asks me to lie or to brainwash. It is true that I often simplify (e. g., in calculus, I do not discuss derivatives as a map from “tangent bundles”) and sometimes I do wave my hands a bit, though often I try to point out that we are using an assumption and, if possible, explain what could happen without the assumption.

But when it comes to social issues….oh boy. I am glad that I am in a STEM area.
