A Liberal Education

Apr 22 2011 @ 1:15pm

Freddie Deboer rejects the notion that college campuses are indoctrination centers:

[T]he constant conservative complaints about liberal bias in the university … reflects such an insulting and wrong vision of students, that they are this amoral jelly upon which anyone with authority can project their political positions. Trust me: these kids will tell you what they think, if you just prompt them a little and show them that they are in a safe space. Whenever I read someone like David Horowitz talking about this generation of innocent youth being indoctrinated into radical politics, all I can think is “you’ve never tried to sneak a line of bullshit by a college class.” Because they will call you on that. Forcefully.
