Here’s Why So Many Republicans View America’s Colleges And Universities Negatively

Many of them have seen or experienced the detrimental results of campus protests, a growing PC culture, and catastrophic student debt.

While 55 percent of the electorate still believe colleges and universities are having a positive impact on our country, a majority of Republicans (58 percent) now believe the opposite, according to a new poll from the Pew Research Center. Their findings—pulled from polling conducted among 2,504 adults—suggest a considerable chasm in the perceptions of higher education between Republicans and Democrats. More than 70 percent of Democrats and Democrat-leaning independents reported a favorable view of America’s colleges and universities.

    I think a college education is a great idea but it depends on what it’s in.

      There are still some very good Prof’s at Universities, but you have to really research who’s courses you are going to take. I always went to a few classes before signing up for any course over the years.

    You want to clean out the marxist asshole profs, then outlaw all of the fluff courses. (Or just stop funding their courses…)
