Idaho's public university: State triples spending to $6M on courses about 'white fragility' and 'toxic masculinity

Article here. Excerpt:

'Idaho public universities have ramped up spending to $6 million on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts and teaching students about 'white fragility' and 'toxic masculinity,' a damning new report shows.

Idaho Freedom Foundation (IFF) researchers have lifted the lid on a tripling of DEI spending since 2022 at Boise State University (BSU) and three other taxpayer-funded schools across the Gem State.

Those schools now have 75 administrators dedicated to DEI, many of them earning six-figure salaries.

The top earner, Yolanda Bisbee, is an expert on tribal relations who bags $170,706 per year as chief diversity officer at the University of Idaho (UI).

'The DEI regime has been growing in Idaho's public universities,' researchers Anna Miller and Scott Yenor said in their 25-page study for the conservative think tank.

Critics say it's a form of reverse discrimination that unfairly blows back on straight, white men.

Others say DEI schemes may be well-intentioned, but seldom achieve their desired goals and often make things worse by stirring up divisions in lecture halls and offices.'
