I think its all about the geographic location of the college. I went to UT Chattanooga and I about lost my mine every day due to the liberal teachers and students that were everywhere. Any impressionable conservative student or independent would quickly become liberal due to everyone else being one and they wanted to fit in. In contrast, I now go to UT Martin and its about reverse from what ive seen thus far. Most of the teachers and students are conservative and the few libs (you can kinda tell), just keep to themselves in little packs.

I'll admit to never having given that factor much thought. At any rate, it's good to know that there are at least a few refuges of something resembling common sense somewhere in public education.

Having just graduated from TN Tech back in December, I will agree with much of what has been mentioned above. One thing I'll add, most people that are great in their field will not be teaching, IMO, they will be running a business somewhere making alot more money, not saying thats always the case though before anybody gets their undies in a wad. It is my opinion that this helps funnel "underperformers" into PHD required professor positions. Coming from Fentress Co., TN, I couldnt believe the amount of liberal crap spewing at TN Tech. I didnt know that many idiots existed. Thats alot of the reason I left the wildlife department and headed to the agriculture department. The School of Agriculture there is like a haven for conservatives, outside of that it's pretty bad.

....I'm at UTC right now. Albeit studying accounting but most (if not all) of my professors have been gun-toting conservatives....I have my doubts on a few though.... The good thing is, I have yet to hear liberal propoganda coming from the podium, but I do see it in the textbooks...

It starts well before college.......



Controversy is brewing around a school district in Denton, Texas, that is said to be using a United States history book that seems to summarize the Second Amendment inaccurately. However, the Denton Independent School District maintains it only uses the book as “supplemental” material and is “disseminating the correct information on the Second Amendment” from other texts.

But there are several other schools that appear to be using the book, too.

“The people have the right to keep and bear arms in a state militia,” the definition in the book, “United States History: Preparing for the Advanced Placement Examination,” which acts as a study guide for the Advanced Placement U.S. history test, reads.

...makes me sick....and anxious for the education of my children...
I'm so sick of these propogandist leftists.
Why can't we just rest on our own values & ideology and let the chips fall where they may??

Because no one in college, (including the professors) have yet to experience real life.

You have a bunch of "adults" who have never left academia informing thousands of students who have yet to leave academia how the real world does or should function.

My niece was nearing her Master's degree in psychology when we met for Thanksgiving last year. For hours I listened to her brain dead comments politics, the Buffet Rule, Universal healtcare etc.

Then, this past spring, we gathered for her commencement. I asked her how starting her own business was going and her reply was "The taxes, OMG, the TAXES are killing me".

She had only been a graduate for a few hours and was 3 weeks into opening her own practice and had already shed 6 years of liberal echo chamber fantasy theories.

Real life has a way of breaking through the BS. Liberalism can only exist in a vacuum. How do you make a conservative? Make them live by fund their own ideas

Hey now, not everyone in college has zero life experience outside of school. But I do agree with everything else you said.

I know some other exceptions to that rule with similar life experience like yours. They all tell me it's like being back in kindergarten.
