Henry Olsen writes in his Washington Times Op-Ed “Dangers of academia’s ‘indoctrination mills’ ” (Monday), “Despite decades of calling out the problem, conservatives have yet to make a serious dent in the left’s dominance of academia.”

Simply put, members of the political left dominate campuses because either the faculty are government employees or they are employees of private institutions dependent on government funding. Either way, they have a vested interest in the advancement of statism.

Sever the link between government and education and you eliminate political indoctrination. Education is a legitimate function of government only if you are a statist.
