Conservatives everywhere should have another reasons to feel optimistic about the future of education for this country.
According to the New York Times,
"Baby boomers, hired in large numbers during a huge expansion in higher education that continued into the ’70s, are being replaced by younger professors who many of the nearly 50 academics interviewed by The New York Times believe are different from their predecessors — less ideologically polarized and more politically moderate."
In addition, Iraq war veterans are coming home and enrolling in schools and universities, many of them with an eye towards teaching. Maybe some common sense and a reasonable approach to education is around the corner. That's what I call the real "Audacity of Hope."
