  1. Ouch. The only “good” news is actually a surprisingly low percentage of bad: “9% say the primary purpose of higher education is to promote social justice.” I’d have guessed a higher number.

  2. “53% say professors have changed their mind on an issue after they heard their perspective”.

    So did the students change their minds on an issue after they heard the professor’s perspective, or did the professors change their minds on an issue after they heard the student’s perspective? Or was it a combination of both possibilities?

    Inquiring mimes want to know.

  3. I had a world history professor (who reminded me of Steve Martin) at DePaul University in the late 70’s who changed my mind. We had to view historical events from different points of view. What a concept! The fall of Rome, the Russian Revolution . . . He’d be run out on a rail today.

  4. We’ve swallowed Marxism for about 100 years. And now, a majority of our 20 year-old kids start out life as good little Communists.

  5. Have had a bad opinion of Ivy League for almost 65 years. Reinforced by the 2 UNIPARTY Presidents starting this century. Never wanted to go, do not want my grandkids going to an Obama/Bush college!

  6. Just look at what Bill Ayers has been doing all these years since the days of the weather underground. Working with the Ford Foundation and other large charitable organizations he’s been heavily involved in the public school curriculum from grade school on up. Any surprise our public schools are turning out compliant little Marxists?
    Those that should have done something about this stood by and watched.

  7. Our educational system, creating good little SJWs by the tens of thousands each year. What a waste of time, effort, money and potential.
