The Classroom Soapbox

"When even five minutes of class time is used to promote an instructor's political beliefs, public property has essentially been converted to a private use," the California Association of Scholars maintains. A syllabus at UC-Santa Cruz asks: "How did Bush and Cheney build the fiction that Al Qaeda was a participant in the 9/11 attacks?" At UCLA, 58 percent the faculty want their students "to become agents of social change." At Berkeley, Democrat faculty outnumbered Republican faculty by 31-1 in history, 29-1 in English, and 17-0 in sociology. Read my piece @ FrontPageMag on "A Crisis of Confidence," a new report documenting activism masquerading as scholarship at America's largest state university system.
