Indoctrinate U.

It's no secret that there's a left-wing bias at most of our nation's universities. I remember, for example, back in 1999 when my friend Kyle Harper (then an OU student and OCPA intern, now an OU classics professor) was editor of The Fountainhead, an alternative (in the good way) student newspaper. Kyle went down to the Cleveland County election board and checked the voter registrations of professors in 19 departments (mostly in Arts and Sciences: economics, history, political science, etc.). He discovered 208 Democrats and 36 Republicans.

Universities pride themselves on their "diversity," yet the most important kind of diversity -- intellectual diversity -- is sorely lacking. For those of you interested in this matter, here's a trailer for an important new documentary called Indoctrinate U.
