Here’s the numbers that prove you shouldn’t wasted your money on liberal education.
Daily Caller – During the past quarter century, academia has seen a nearly 20 percent jump in the number of professors who identify as liberal. That increase has created a lopsided ideological spread in higher education, with liberal professors now outpacing their conservative counterparts by a ratio of roughly 5 to 1.
In 2014, 60 percent of professors identified as “liberal” or “far left,” according to the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA, as reported by The Washington Post’s “Wonkblog.”
Compare that with 1990 survey data, when only 42 percent said the same.
While academia has shifted dramatically to the left, professors on the right have dropped off.
The number of professors who identified as “conservative” and “far right” during the same time span fell by nearly 6 percent while the number of “moderate” academics dropped by 13 percentage points.
