Letter to the Editor

The editorial from the last issue of this paper, which asserts that rapists need to be taught that rape is wrong is 100% true and I agree wholeheartedly with the piece. After all, we all know that human beings have no sense of right or…

All kids deserve a strong start to life. By age 5, a child’s brain is already 90 percent developed, yet two out of five American children are not enrolled in preschool by this time. Investments in high-quality early learning programs lay the foundation for success…

Letter to the Editor: Sojo White

Last week there were many responses to the much talked about Valentine’s Day issue The Scout published. As a senior, I have never seen such unity and mobilization between student organizations for one cause at Bradley. I have never seen a hashtag such as #NotOurVoice…

Letter to the Editor: Briana Mathews

Two Fridays ago, I picked up the Scout’s Valentine’s Day issue. Immediately, I felt it was inappropriate and very tasteless material. Although it did not offend me personally, I understood how the paper was offensive as it was heteronomative, slut shaming, and promoting a rape…

Letter to the Editor: Tom Dermody

As a Bradley journalism alum and former copy editor of The Scout, I enjoy picking up the paper when I’m on campus. I’m not sure how to describe my reaction to what I saw in the Feb. 12 “Valentine’s Day” issue. Disbelief? Disappointment? Disgust? Anger?…
