Post Partisan University?

Glenn Ricketts

Check out this piece at IHE today, where the author discusses the lopsided ideological imbalance that currently rules the American academy and the fact that so many in the professoriate are oblivious to it. Introspection and self-examination, he argues persuasively, are largely absent from the minds of most academics, who can only see "bias" elsewhere.

He must have hit pretty close to home. Although the responses so far aren't quite up to the level of screeching directed at NAS president Peter Wood for his recent piece on Climate Thuggery, they still serve to reinforce the author's case, no doubt unaware as usual.

Obviously, we're not close to creating a "post-partisan" university anytime soon, but it's encouraging that more people are aware that we've got a problem.
