Look what they’ve done to it.
But at least they charge high tuition for this maleducation, so it’s got that going for it.
Of course there is the other side, which you always ignore since it clashes with your beliefs…

Truth is that colleges, like the rest of society run the whole spectrum of political beliefs from left to right and so you are able to support whatever theory you want by cherry picking your articles.
How is that “the other side”? What does it even have to do with this post?
Gee, Rand do you get paid to be so dense?
It shows that not all groups or individuals in education are to the left, which seems to be why you posted this article link as part of your continual attacks on higher education.
I could with much more justification ask the same question of you.
I never claimed otherwise.
But you are the one being dense.
Governor Mitt Romney’s economic plan has gained the enthusiastic public endorsement of more than 600 professional economists, including six Nobel laureates.
The operative words in the article you cite are: “has gained.” You don’t gain the support of people who already agree with you; you gain the support from those who need to be convinced. Those would be ones on the “other side.”
The 600 are said to be “professional” economists, which means for all we know they may not even be in academia. (The link to the Huffing Post within the article you cite is broken).
So your example of what you believe to be a right-wing balance in the university environment isn’t a very good one. Science and math are difficult to opinionate. You’ll have to come up with a better example of right wing ideas being freely expressed in the major universities and colleges as a balance to those of the left.
But I have to tell you that I like the fact that 600 professional economists, including six Nobel laureates enthusiastically endorsed Mitt Romney’s economic plan. Keep in mind that they not only endorsed Romney’s plan, they *enthusiastically* endorsed it.
The last time I saw that number here someone said it was too small to be considered significant.
Thomas, why are there any sides? It’s history. It happened. How about just covering the issues that changed the course of history?
Which means beating the weeds to highlight lesbian heroes or other minority actors is probably not about teaching history.
You didn’t read my post, did you?
By now you should know I read everything. What’s your point?
