Could one of the college edjumakated members of this blog please post on this?
It seems completely lame on its face and it comes from Horowitz, so clearly its grounding in any sort of evidence is tenuous at best. However, since I spent a grand total of 3 semesters at a junior college in Cupertino taking mostly CompSci classes and ignoring everything else, I may have a somewhat skewed view on the Academy. I never experienced any political bias in any of the classes I took, unless you count as political bias being given a "C" on a programming project due to a refusal to comment code or abide the instructor's source formatting rules. At the time I viewed it more as a religious issue but then again I hadn't programmed professionally yet.
