Modern colleges and universities are largely beholden to a prevailing leftist ideology. Officials and professors often indoctrinate students with big government propaganda, providing no accommodation for those who wish to express a dissenting viewpoint. Unfortunately, these same institutions are also defined by job security, meaning tenured staff members can spew virtually any outrageous opinion in the classroom and still maintain their position. As an administrator at one Kentucky college discovered, however, there is one perspective that is not tolerated on campus. Kent Robinson, once the Jefferson Community and Technical College’s human resources director, was fired from the position last November. He is now suing the school, claiming he was let go because of his conservative values.
