The Anti-College Try

Higher education isn't what it's cracked up to be:
Pew found that fifty-eight percent of Republicans viewed college education negatively, while 36 percent of GOP voters saw these institutions positively.

Democrats, on the other hand, overwhelmingly viewed higher education favorably, with 72 percent of the party’s self-described voters having a positive opinion of it. Only 19 percent of Democrats had a negative view of higher education, according to Pew.

The prestigious research firm said that Republican views on college have dramatically changed over a short period of time. In just two years, the number of Republicans who positively viewed higher education declined from 54 percent to 36 percent, Pew reports.

The study also reported that self-described conservative Republicans were more likely to suspiciously view college education — 65 percent versus 58 percent for all GOP voters.

Pew didn’t offer reasons for why the sudden change in Republican views of higher education, but it is possibly due in part to greater attention toward the left-wing excesses on campus that have shut down conservative speech and pushed progressive views on students.
They don't need no thought control...
