The infamous 88 left-wing professors who made their name with their “listening statement” during the Duke lacrosse case, continue to drag down Duke’s reputation. When will the Duke administration do something about it? Who would pay $45,000 in tuition (or whatever the figure is these days) to subject their kids to multicultural cant, left-wing propaganda and America-hating diatribes in what passes for instruction?

Duke may think it can ride this out by just lying low, but that’s not going to work. Instead of meaningless “cultural initiatives” that try to put the blame on the tuition-paying students they should create a task force aimed at evaluating instruction, curriculum and abysmal scholarship that is immune from criticism by political correctness.
