Abstract

In the piece I argue that Gross's theory about why academics tend to be social democrats is riddled with statistical errors and historical inaccuracy. The piece has been published in Academic Questions, 29:1.

Keywords: democratic to republican ratio, left orientation of higher education, why are professors liberal
