Whistle, I assume your buggy whip comment is a recognition that segregated institutions are antiquated. This is especially true since women now play a very integral essential role in the military. To train separately makes absolutely no sense. This particular idea was a part of the Supreme Court decision to require VMI to go coed.Whistle Pig said:Interesting that the VMIs were able to holdout for so long.
At least from an educational perspective, it's too bad these all-women, all-men bastions have been conquered. The evidence, especially for women, has been clear and compelling.
Oh well. Good buggy whips are hard to find too.
However, since this is only about military issues and the successful integration and teamwork of both sexes, we cannot place that issue to the side. What good is leadership among women if they have not been trained to exert the same leadership to their fellow male soldiers?Whistle Pig said:So I must conclude that military issues aside, .
I don't know how the academics compare to West Point or the Naval Academy, but will tell you they are not easy.Joan said:Thanks for your feedback...it is helping...how about the actual academics of the The Citadel or VMI once you are at the school..do you feel they are as tough as say West Point or the other academies? How do VMI and The Citadel compare to the academies in academics?
One more question...Is VMI as tough physically and militarily as The Citadel? Thank you!
