The kids are all right

Oh what a bunch of sad pandas the faculty of NC State University must be right now. All that expensive indoctrination going to waste.

A recent survey of North Carolina State University students and faculty shows a huge political divide between faculty and the student body.

44 percent of students who responded to The Pack Poll said they would vote for Mitt Romney, 42 percent prefer Barack Obama, and the rest remain undecided or prefer another candidate. The margin of error is +/- 2.98 percent.

81 percent of faculty members, however, said they would vote Obama, compared to 15 percent who favor Romney. The margin of error is +/- 6.1 percent.

Even scarier, from the faculty’s point of view is the horribly racist opinion of the students that Voter ID is a good idea.

57 percent of students support a requirement that voters show photo ID; 22 percent are in opposition 

 Ouch. The Liberal indoctrination is failing.

  1. So why should conservative voters support public funding of NCSU?

  2. BP beat me to it… Let em scrape up their OWN money rather that feeding at the public trough…

  3. I’d do it differently. I would make student loans dischargable by bankruptcy, but they would not be Federally insured. Make the schools loan the money to the students.

    Effect would be that banks would leave the market except to loan to students with high GPAs pursuing STEM courses. They wouldn’t loan money to students pursuing Art History or other wastes of time. The schools wouldn’t loan money to people who might not repay it. Then the schools would be caught in a trap of overcapacity with too little money coming in.

    Final outcome would be a lot of lib professors would be asked to find productive work somewhere else while tuition rates would come down to meet actual demand. Federal student loans and tuition subsidies just jack up the prices. Pull the price supports and the whole rotten edifice collapses.

    Did I mention that I despise the Education/Government Complex?

  4. The United States is a deeply conservative society run by a mixture of boring conservatives and boring moderates, including the schools.
