I started thinking about college after reading a few references to higher education in another post. The common theme was that higher education is focused on a liberal attitude and to succeed a student, by in large, has to conform. From my own experiance I would have to agree with that. I did not graduate with a BA until I was 32. Spent a while in the USMC getting a real eduction before earning a degree at a well known Wash DC univeristy in 1982. I guess I was fortunate in that I had some exposure to reality before being exposed to the liberalism I found so very evident and pervasive at the school I attended. But it was almost tragic to see the kids coming out of HS actually eating up and seriously beliving the libeal tripe that was tought by the professors. I would submit that this type of education dynamic is akin to a form of child abuse. The young minds are forced to beleive in a liberal philosophy not only becaue it is required to make a good grade but the process is fuelled by professors that they look up to as role models. I also did some work toward a masters in education some years ago but quickly found that my refusal to fit in with the professors' model of a student and my constant pushing back on the other students relative to teaching philosophy (they were all teachers) put me at a disadvantage that made it evident that my conservative views would not be tollerated in the clan of the educators. So, this not so much of a rant as it is an observation that I wanted to just throw out there. Somehow there must be a ballance in how our kids and young adults are educatted in terms of what is available for them to choose from in not only job prepairation but in life's political spectrum as well. But I don't see that taking place and with the liberal agenda beoming more popular I don't see an equal representation happening.
