Thanks for the review. But you could spare us the lecture on politics. Not sure what taxes have to do with it. Colleges are private institutions. Do you mean universities?

Bottom line: There are thousands of schools to choose from - and plenty with a conservative bent, if that's your preference. Stop your whining.

A very good and timely book - and quite disturbing. I don't know what I found to be worse: the terrible damage the tenure system has brought to our great university system; or the extreme leftwing viewpoints of the majority of college professors today. Whatever happened with going to college to get a "well-rounded" education? But back to the book - I found it well written, easy to read and backed up by facts. A must read for anyone with college-age children - or for anyone who pays taxes for that matter.

Note: my taxes support the state univeristy system, which gives me a very valid right to "whine."
