Why was liberal-education.com created?
Liberal-education.com was created to shine light upon a pervasive and ever growing problem in American colleges and universities, namely: Bias. It is our opinion that no teacher should be in the habit of presenting opinion as fact, and further that no professor should treat students of a differing mindset unfairly through either grading bias or through browbeating.
It should also be acknowledged that this site looks in particular at the bias imparted by left wing professors. As the Washingon Post reports, college professors are a vast majority of liberal democrats:
“By their own description, 72 percent of those teaching at American universities and colleges are liberal and 15 percent are conservative, says the study being published this week. The imbalance is almost as striking in partisan terms, with 50 percent of the faculty members surveyed identifying themselves as Democrats and 11 percent as Republicans.”
Who has control of the schools?
This left wing control on primary and higher education has done little but to create a system devoid of anything but conformity to outdated and fallacious ideas. It is with this in mind that liberal-education.com seeks chiefly to expose the left wing zealots in the education system. As liberal Democrats comprise a vast majority of the education system it is our understanding, as well as the understanding of many other men and organizations of learning, that the main cause of our failing education system is the influence of leftist demagogs. In short, America’s classrooms are a monopoly of the left where in free thought has no home. This monopoly of thought is best described by author and former New York school teacher of the year John Taylor Gatto:
“By preventing a free market in education, a handful of social engineers – backed by the industries that profit from compulsory schooling: teacher colleges, textbook publishers, materials suppliers, et al. – has ensured that most of our children will not have an education, even though they may be thoroughly schooled.”
What we oppose:
- Tenured teachers and professors who no longer care, are massively biased, and are only concerned with research and not with teaching.
- Classrooms where those in possession of differing opinions are forced to hold their tongue and are not allowed to speak freely without ridicule.
- Students who receive poor grades for having views based in fact but differing from that of the professor.
- Textbooks that frequently berate ideas that are not liberal in nature.
- Colleges and Universities that protect professors who are patently biased.
- Classrooms that have only one goal; the creation of a society of people who only know one way of thought, do not seek objective truth, are bullied or subverted into conformity, and are aimed at the creation of a non-philosophical class of “worker bees” who are smart enough to do one job, but stupid enough to never question their superiors or their jobs.
Historical Basis of Bias in Education
John D. Rockefeller’s General Education Board , a force in education at the turn of the last century, wrote the following regarding the ideal educational environment:
“In our dreams…people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hands. The present educational conventions [intellectual and character education] fade from our minds, and unhampered by tradition we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive folk. We shall not try to make these people or any of their children into philosophers or men of learning or men of science. We have not to raise up from among them authors, educators, poets or men of letters. We shall not search for embryo great artists, painters, musicians, nor lawyers, doctors, preachers, politicians, statesmen, of whom we have ample supply. The task we set before ourselves is very simple…we will organize children…and teach them to do in a perfect way the things their fathers and mothers are doing in an imperfect way.”
In summation, as the General Education Board’s objectives persist to this day in modern classrooms all over America, it is our goal to promote the polar opposite. If you are a student then rate your professor, take control back from the schools and no longer subserviently listen to the biased words of biased professors, help create a change for the better in the decaying U.S. education system!
