Preparing for College

Why So Many Liberal Professors?

Way back in December 2008, I wrote a blog post entitled, Seven Things I Didn't Like About College. The #1 item on that list was Elitist, leftist professors, where I explained:

This affected me directly due to my military service. When I would try to advocate a pro-America, pro-military point of view, some of my professors (and even TAs) would brand me as a redneck, jingoist killer of innocent women and children or some variation thereof. Although I can't prove it, I honestly believe that their attitudes negatively affected my grades in some courses. The situation is far worse today, unfortunately.
