Content Warning: This editorial contains mention of sexual assault and violence.
From unpaid to paid labor, our lives as college students revolve around work. Working to have enough money for weekly groceries, to pay tuition, to help make ends meet at home. Working to get “experience,” to build a resume, to get that dream entry-level job after graduation. Working to keep your GPA afloat and to get through yet another week of classes and midterms.
Outside of loan options, students typically turn to financial aid and scholarships to finance their education. UW-Madison has multiple “Wisconsin Promises” in place for in-state students that qualify for financial aid, like Bucky’s Tuition Promise Plus, Badger Promise and the Financial Aid Security Track.
Students have long told UW-Madison that “it is not enough for the University of Wisconsin System to demonstrate optical allyship … by means of posting on social media, tokenizing students of color and providing resources for students and alumni to combat racism on an individual level.” Instead, they have called for the UW to make good on their promises and deconstruct the systems that “uphold racial inequalities.”
Within the city of Madison, there are a plethora of issues which affect local residents. Oftentimes, though, it’s easy to get caught up in national level issues, leading city politics to take a back seat. As students and residents alike, we bear witness to the impacts of housing policies, policing and drug enforcement, to name just a few issues.
Editor’s Note: On March 31, 2021, the Daily Cardinal retracted this endorsement of Ayomi Obuseh for District 8 Alder following the candidate’s discouraging comments on sexual assault. Read the full statement here.
Heading into the Nov. 3 election, we are in crisis mode. Each day we are inundated with new, depressing messages about the coronavirus pandemic, the economic downturn and the pressure of partisan politics weighing us down as we attempt to float above waters, grasping for a breath of fresh air. Our grievances and futures are on the ballot this year.
With only days left until Election Day, we are not afraid to inundate your social media and our channels with voting PSAs. Whether you are a freshman who can now vote for the first time, a youth voter with some experience or an experienced alum who keeps up with our coverage, we believe it is our duty to mobilize voters into taking action. Voting is indeed a civic duty that must be taken seriously, especially in an election dubbed as “the most consequential in American history.”
Here at The Daily Cardinal, we envision a future that is truly representative of the interests of all people, a future where equity and justice are the building blocks to policy making and a future where human dignity is not only respected and valued, but is foundational to our government.
George Floyd. Breonna Taylor. Sandra Bland. Tony Robinson. The exhaustion that comes from being forced to recite that list over and over again, each time with an added name, is nothing in comparison to the exhaustion that comes from bearing the weight of knowing we lost another life to the systems of white supremacy and racism in this country. For BIPOC folx, this weight is increased exponentially. We cannot simply turn off the news and momentarily forget or ignore the institutions that have oppressed our people for hundreds of years — we have to bear the consequences of a system that has gone unchecked for too long. We have to demand justice and change in ways that non-BIPOC folx will never understand.
As we have all experienced over these six months, the COVID-19 crisis has upended normalcy. From remote working to virtual learning, the loss of healthcare to the loss of loved ones, the coronavirus has forced us all to operate under a new, frightening reality. At the same time, it has brought into crisp focus our society’s greatest inequities and our leaders’ misplaced priorities.
Editors' Note [July 29, 2020 at 9:26 p.m.]: This correction has been edited for clarity. Additionally, the statement provided by Madeline Pawlak has been updated. An earlier version of their statement incorrectly claimed Collin Rees said Roys has never violated the pledge. Rees clarified, "Kelda Roys did indeed violate the No Fossil Fuel Money pledge... [and] acted quickly to remedy these violations, and returned them. Because she did so, she remains a pledge signer and in good standing with the No Fossil Fuel Money pledge."
To our readers,
Every student — regardless of their race, ethnicity, citizenship, gender, sexual orientation and the like — should have access to an adequate education. Unfortunately, Trump’s administration doesn’t seem to agree.
High school is a fundamental aspect to every student’s education.
In today’s classrooms, most students have probably seen and are familiar with signs saying, “This is a safe space,” or hear a professor utter the same words as they read through the course syllabus. But what does this mean, exactly?
The educational pipeline is a period of exploration of one’s identity, place in society and their academic interests. It is a phase where opinions are like clay in its initial stages — if well-shaped it can make a beautiful pot, but mishandling can result in long-lasting effects. The curriculum taught to children in school defines the opinions formed at this “early clay” phase but also sets them up for future academic exploration.
When headlines detailing the harrowing situation resulting in grad student John Brady’s death plastered the internet, UW-Madison quaked.
If language is an expression of identity, why does it often favor able-bodied folx?
