Study says most college courses taught by liberals

A new study from the Randolph Foundation has found that most collegiate level courses in the United States are taught by liberals.

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: 50 percent of the faculty members surveyed identified themselves as Democrats and 11 percent as Republicans.

The disparity is even more pronounced at the most elite schools, where, according to the study, 87 percent of faculty members are liberal and 13 percent are conservative.

In other news, "Sky is blue, water is wet." Details at 11.

This doesn't surprise me a bit. I attend a small public college in Virginia and I would definetly say that a majority of the prefessors are liberal. There are even a few who feel the need to push their agendas on students.
