Hi there,
I just got the sentence from a sample writing answer my teacher sent me.
The topic is: Education will be truly effective only when it is specifically designed to meet the individual needs and interests of each student.

"This lends strong credence to justify the rights for school to require students to dabble the kaleidoscopic inquires by virtue of espousing to designed curriculum rather than arbitrarily decide what they would like to exclusively delve into merely on the basis of their visceral impulses."
I checked the dictionary and it says "espouse" is a transitive verb. I do not understand why it here is connected to the preposition "to" .Thanks a lot.
