This is not really surprising given our current culture that views higher education, with the exception of institutions like Liberty University, as liberal indoctrination centers. Still, I think this is an alarming trend. There are a lot of issues with the higher education system in the US today but I'm pretty certain that's not why conservatives are turning so rapidly against it. I believe it has more to do with the fact that conservatives don't want people learning and accepting science over a Biblical worldview and they don't want youth being exposed to the different cultures and lifestyles they are exposed to on a secular college campus. What do you think?

The funny thing about thought. It is only threatening to those who don't employ it. What happens to nations when their give over their thought to their gods? One need only look the cessation of development in the middle east after the rise of Islam there.

LOL. Science denial is a Left-wing phenomenon.

See Angela Saini and Amy Harmon for recent anti-science activism.

Higher ed ain't bad for America... but, higher ed run exclusively by postmodernists is!

No doubt they're being told to reject college by people who already have a college degree.

I earned an advanced degree in a STEM field from a public university and it unquestionably was a liberal indoctrination center. I was 100% bought into Democrat beliefs, essentially brainwashed and I didn’t realize it at the time.

Furthermore this also occurred, but to a lesser degree at the public middle and high schools I attended.

It took 2-3 years of being out in the real world and thinking for myself to open my eyes.

The degrees enable me to live a comfortable, high income life. So there is absolutely value in higher education. But anyone who argues that most education facilities aren’t operated by liberals who seek to pollute the minds of their young followers is either delusional or dishonest.

Both sides deny science in favor of their own ideologies.

Conservatives tend to be religious ideologs, liberals tend to be Lamarckian evolutionists.

Not "higher ed" per se, but what higher education has become in the Current Year.

Hope that helps.
