Corruption in Higher Education

From 2019 to 2021, after being fired from Patrick Henry College without warning at the start of the academic year, plus witnessing similar dismissals of colleagues at other Christian institutions, I investigated several developments higher education in the US and elsewhere, and discovered quite staggering degrees of corruption, far beyond the stock complaints of conservatives and others, whch served largely as smokescreens to disguise the real problems.  The most scholarly and comprehensive piece is published by the Martin Center.

January 2021

Universities are devising furtive and ruthless new methods for airbrushing politically incorrect professors out of their institutions without the world knowing.  They are not only suppressing academic freedom, but enlisting the public judiciary to suppress freedom of expression generally and furthering the alarming trend of allowing legal practitioners the power to punish legally innocent people. Ironically, the trend-setters are conservative Christian colleges.  You may think you know what is wrong with higher education, but until you read this, you do not.
