Indoctrination U

Peter Berkowitz on how politically partisan university professors attempt to indoctrinate their students thereby cheating them out of a real education.

National studies by Stanley Rothman in 1999, and by Neil Gross and Solon Simmons in 2007, have shown that universities' leftward tilt has become severe. And a 2005 study by Daniel Klein and Andrew Western in Academic Questions (a NAS publication) shows this is certainly true in California. For example, Democrats outnumbered Republicans four to one on University of California, Berkeley, professional school faculties; in the social sciences the ratio was approximately 21 to one.
The same 2005 study revealed that the Berkeley sociology department faculty was home to 17 Democrats and no Republicans. The political science department included 28 Democrats and two Republicans. The English department had 29 Democrats and one Republican; and the history department had 31 Democrats and one Republican.
While political affiliation alone need not carry classroom implications, the overwhelmingly left-leaning faculty openly declare the inculcation of progressive political ideas their pedagogical priority. As "A Crisis of Competence" notes, "a recent study by UCLA's prestigious Higher Education Research Institute found that more faculty now believe that they should teach their students to be agents of social change than believe that it is important to teach them the classics of Western civilization."

It unfortunately is perhaps happening in almost every college and universtity across America. Take it from one who was a long-time administrator at a regional university and who had the opportunity to visit and get to know very well over 25 different colleges/universities on accreditation visits. A 100% to none Democrat vs Republican faculty member ratio is not at all the exception. So, yes, Indoctrination U (or college) is on the mark.
