I think it is fairly well established (can't remember where I saw it - but there was a study done) that the higher one's level of education the greater the likelihood of being liberal. So this really comes as no surprise.

Another study a while ago found that persons with more education are more likely to lean to the left. It was something like 50/50 at the batchelor degree level, and 60/40 at the masters level, 70/30 at doctorate and so on. These are not the actual figures, but reasonable approximations from my oh-so-fallible memory. But you get the gist of the article.

So it makes sense that professors teaching at university level would be more liberal.

Goes to show....the more you know.

I know its bad netiquette to quote yourself but I forgot to add one thing.... don't try the argument more educated = more "enlightened" crap. Because that's what it is. Crap.

TG, if you don't want to hear it, then why ask.

I can put the answer in guitar learning terms. When a new student comes in, they have an idea about what they want to learn. They think to themselves, "if I could only play that tune (rock or whatever), I would be happy and really good. So they get to the point where they CAN play the tune they originally thought was the end all be all of guitar and they realize that there is more to learn. Now, instead of the knowledge they thought they wanted to learn (the size of a peanut), they realize to get good, they need to learn enough knowledge to fill a room. So they learn that much. And now they realize that they need to learn enough to fill a small town to be good. So they learn it. And now, to be good, they need to learn enough to fill a state... and so on. At some point they realize that they will never really reach the end but that the journey is the whole point of learning and playing the guitar.

What is my point...


Ignorance is bliss and it is much easier not knowing and being happy with it then learning and realizing your limitations.

Having said that, I believe that most college professors are not half as smart as they think they are. But many have taken the time to look at the world from a viewpoint not seen in smalltown america. I think it is this larger viewpoint that drives many "scholars" to be more socially responsive and in turn democrats.

just my 2 cents,

Mike

PS.

In this very biased article you posted, was the following quote. "It's hard to see that these liberal views cut very deeply into the education of students. In fact, a number of studies show the core values that students bring into the university are not very much altered by being in college."

A statement like this assumes that the "liberal" teachers were going to corrupt the morals of the young.  THe funny thing is that teachers are mostly very careful to be very moral in a student's presence. It has been my experience that teachers feel as though they have to be/act within very narrow constraints of high moral conduct.  A very boring lot; the vast majority of them.

T he real reason is that a true money grubbing conservative is anxious to get out in the world and make his mark, while the true liberal would rather stay in school so they can hang out with other liberals and talk shit about the evils of straight-white-men.

Becoming a teacher is simply not the goal of most conservative-thinking people (like I'm their spokeman or something!). As my brother (a teacher) says, "Those who can, do. And those who can't, teach." His words, not mine.

I'm going to school part time right now. Last semester I bit my lip through most of a Sociology class taught by a woman that spent the entire semester spewing about the evils of males of European descent. In one of the final papers, I pointed out that attitudes like hers were offensive and racist. I got a written apology.

This semester I enrolled in a US History class, I walked out after listening to the instructor rant about the evils of Republicans for a solid 20 minutes. I mean really, it's OK to have your opinions, but this is a History class for God's sake. Just give me names and dates and let me figure out the rest. Instead of teaching, they prefer to indoctrinate, which is not what I pay them to do.
