Peer-review is the gold standard for publishing in the Academy, except when it comes to findings that don’t support the prevailing politically correct ideology about sexuality and identity. Professor Mark Regnerus speaks about the firestorm he endured when he published findings in an esteemed peer-reviewed journal about the variety of parenting and outcomes for children in America. Like Professor Edward Schlosser, a self-avowed liberal (about whom the last Signposting was written), he speaks of the chilling effect of the blow-back that comes from exploring ideas that challenge the spirit of the age, which is, supposedly, the raison d-etre of the University.
All in all just another brick in the wall.
We don’t need no education
We don’t need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey teacher leave them kids alone
All in all it’s just another brick in the wall
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall
Another Brick in the Wall Pt. 2 by David Gilmour and Roger Waters from Pink’s Floyd’s, The Wall (1979)
