Which is why it’s increasingly irrelevant …

… Academia Neglects Its Most Important Function: A Free Marketplace of Ideas - American Thinker.

In one eye-opening finding, 74 percent of undergrads endorse the view that a professor who says “something that students find offensive” should be reported to the university. By a majority almost as lopsided, 65 percent believe that a fellow student who says something they consider offensive should be turned in. That informers’ mindset is especially pronounced among students who identify themselves as politically liberal, fully 85 percent of whom would report a professor who offends them. But even among self-identified conservatives, a solid majority, 56 percent, are of the same mindset. 

The problem with this, obviously, is that since they think they think they know everything already, why are they in school?
