Tenure is granted by existing faculty and administrators. Once the liberals gain control they make sure only liberals get tenure, cementing and perpetuating their control.
In the political world they rig elections to accomplish the same thing.
The left has always been a minority who control through tricks, deception and intimidation. The Democrats are the left in this country.
Do you ever hire anyone seeking their first job? If so, how do you decide?
I despise those that require such a thing to keep a job, rather than being judged on production.
Probably true. The numbers are in inverse relationship to what is considered PC today. Bias against Jews is a no-no but bias against Evangelicals is in. Mormans are second because of the strength of Romney in the Republican race.
Like you, I doubt this reflects true feelings.
Most faculty members dont like evangelicals and aren’t ashamed to admit it.”
The feeling is mutual, I’m sure.
Faculty are mostly “wanna-bes” that never made it so they try to teach it.
I’m sad that Catholics aren’t higher up on that graph. It’s because people know that the majority of people who identify themselves as Catholics don’t take it seriously.
I don't think it's the killing. It's the America-hating that unites Muslims and liberal academics.
I have not, but I have noticed that most of our first-job hires are high performaning interns - true they had to be in college to get those internships, but my point is more that the traditional 4 year college education will become a thing of the past.
Does it really benefit an illiterate 12th grader to be forced through a 4 year liberal arts college? No.
Like chevy chase says in Caddyshack “The world needs ditch diggers, too”
I agree with your general premise, a college education is not necessary to be a valued, high-performing employee. The lack of quality in the education being gained by many grads also affects that.
For the last 25 years a degree was just a convenient way for those hiring to screen the applicants, or more accurately, to trim the numbers to be interviewed.
However, in technical fields a certain level of knowledge is necessary in order to begin learning the real stuff in the real world.
