Image of Opinion | Affirmative Action in Hiring for the Left - The Wall Street Journal

We are learning that the Supreme Court didn’t go far enough in tidying up our colleges when it derailed racial preferences in admissions (“Hamas War Shows Us What American Universities Stand For” by Jason Riley, Upward Mobility, Oct.18).Many schools still hire faculty and administrators based on another form of affirmative action: for left-leaning ideology.Then, they “educate” students while applying that bias.We are seeing the unfavorable results as certain faculty members and students applaud Hamas’s heinous acts.The courts aren’t responsible for righting colleges’ left-listing hiring practices, but the court of public opinion, which includes university donors, can and should pursue such efforts.Copyright ©2023 Dow Jones & Company, Inc.
