Ohio: Banning political bias in the classroom

by on February 17th, 2005


CLEVELAND — Several Ohio state lawmakers want to pass legislation that they argue is needed to ban political bias on college campuses.

“Students should be free to give their opinion without fear of retribution,” said Ohio GOP State Sen. Larry Mumper.

According to Mumper, professors in the Buckeye State are discriminating against students who don’t hold the same political views, and the bias is usually a liberal one. He points to a recent study by a Santa Clara University researcher that found Democrats outnumber Republicans eight to one among social science and humanities faculty as evidence of the left slant.
