    Note to self:

    Do not follow these college's investment theories.

    1. Poor investments.

    2. Terrible Return.

    The implications of these numbers are clear:

    Vanderbilt and Rice are hotbeds of Nazism.

    I'm suprised so many of those colleges are liberal when they depend upon the government defense spending to do a whole lot of research. MIT has even been called the Military Institute of Technology. Maybe it was Bush's disapproval of stem cells that did it.

    A larger question is are these people the future, is conservatism on the way out. I wouldn't think so. The question comes up "Do most people go to college?" if most people in college are liberal. Maybe some of their views change once their encounter with the Real World amounts to more than watching MTV.

    Nope, the majority are NOT college grads. It used to be that only the 'elite' were exposed to the hammering of viewpoints, whether 'left' or 'right'. The secondary schools focused much more on transmission of knowledge. For the past 40 years or so, that has changed, in an accelerating pattern.

    Having served on 2 text review committees and led 2 text selection committees, there is no doubt that the 'revisionists' have been winning the social studies texts war. About 5 years ago though, the Association of History Professors refused to accept the standards suggested by the National Council of the Social Studies, which are now in the process of being rewritten. That, along with 9/11, seems to have changed to at least a small degree where most textbook publishers are going. Prentice-Hall was the best we could do in 2000. They are much better in the 2005 edition.
