“I thank God, we have not free schools nor printing … For learning has brought disobedience, and heresy and sects into the world; and printing has divulged them and libels against the government. God keep us from both!”
~ Sir William Berkeley, (1606-1677) Royal Governor of Virginia
Something I often hear from Conservative family members is that college professors have a Liberal bias.
Ergo higher education has a Liberal bias.
At kindergarten (and pre-kindergarten, and nowadays pre-pre-kindergarten) all the way through high school, we can …
- Vote for a school board to preserve our Conservative values.
- Raise a ruckus to enforce prayer in school. (Granted, we can already pray there, just not officially lead prayer.)
- Apply pressure to let teachers teach from the Bible. (Granted, they can already talk about the importance of the Bible in our culture, along with the Qoran in Arab nations, or the Tao te Ching, or whatever else those godless heathens in other countries read. But we can’t teach directly from the Bible like in those glorious one-room schoolhouses of the 1800s.)
Public schools we can influence. But at college level, education is out of our hands.
Higher education has a Liberal bias. Could that be why college costs so much in our good ol’ U.S.A.? God knows we don’t want to be manufacturing no more uppity Liberals.
