Years ago I'd heard self polling among journalists identified themselves as 85% liberal, and educators even higher at over 90% liberal. The education profession is having a decided influence on our nation's youth. It's supposed to, regarding their education ... but they're not supposed to be indoctrinating their politics. As long as the education profession does not reflect the political balance of the nation such indoctrination will occur, even if not intended (but I'm not sure it's not intentional). For example, I find it hard to fathom the largest labor union in the country teaching our youth does not influence how they lecture on the topic of unions.
