Discussion Questions

1. Why do you think college professors tend to "lean left"? Why don't Conservatives or Libertarians get hired as much? Discuss. Do some research to support your arguments.

2. Can biased professors affect how students are learning? How? Should students have to "adjust" to bias? Why or why not?

3. What could be done, if anything, to make sure students are getting a balanced education? What would you do if you encountered this type of situation?

4. As a student, do you want to learn all sides of an argument or topic? Would you prefer to learn from someone that only teaches a point of view you already agree with? What about a point of view you don't agree with? Discuss.
