Robert Maranto Discusses Anti-Christian Prejudice in Higher Education

Robert Maranto

Robert Moranto, NAS Member and the 21st Century Chair in Leadership in the Department of Education Reform at the University of Arkansas, has written a very good article on anti-Christian prejudice in higher education at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. In it he writes:

In jocular fashion, the committee chair and other professors berated Maria’s college and questioned her intellectual fitness, discounting standardized test scores and other objective criteria. Not surprisingly, the faculty rejected Maria, and though reluctant to judge fellow academicians, Posselt lamented, “whether Maria had received a fair hearing was debatable.” ... [Maria]  was not a racial minority, but within academia, a religious minority, a traditional Christian.

Compared to racial and gender discrimination, this kind of religious discrimination gets little attention from researchers. Professors do not find the topic interesting, which itself is telling. Yet the extant research findings are concerning.

Dr. Maranto cites the extensive research of Stanley Rothman, a stalwart of NAS for many decades--and integrates it into more recent research as well.
