I can’t imagine that anyone required an actual survey to determine this.
But here it is anyway…
Liberal professors outnumber Conservative professors at a rate of 5 to 1.
The Washington Post reports, “In 1990, according to survey data by the Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) at UCLA, 42 percent of professors identified as “liberal” or “far-left.” By 2014, that number had jumped to 60 percent.”
This shift can account for the outright liberal bias taught on a daily basis in our institutions of “higher learning.”
Outside of that there is just no room for Conservative ideas to have a chance of being discussed, or imparted into any lecture. This vacuum in the battle of ideas may claim some Conservative students who leave home, and then think, “this must be the way everyone thinks, and everyone at home is just wrong”, but it can actually do even more damage to already liberal-minded individuals, as if they weren’t damaged enough already!
“Conservatives benefit from having liberal ideas to expand their horizons and challenge their thinking, but ideologically liberal students get their ideas reinforced. This means they’re not growing intellectually because they don’t have the exposure to other ideas to make them think.” (The Daily Signal)
Parents beware, it isn’t just parties and bad grades you have to worry about when you send your young Republican off to school. You also have to fear the damage done by an entrenched liberal establishment inundating students within an echo-chamber of liberal ideology.
What would be more terrifying, the call one night that your son or daughter was picked up for underage drinking…or them coming home as…<shudder>… a liberal?
