Survey: College Students Afraid to Disagree with Professors' Political Beliefs
A recent survey found that the majority of college students polled said that they're afraid to disagree with the political beliefs of their professors.
The survey -- conducted by research company McLaughlin & Associates -- found that 53 percent of the 800 students polled feel "intimidated" to share dissenting opinions.
"There is a fear, both with the professors and fellow students," The Wall Street Journal's James Freeman said Monday on Fox & Friends.
Freeman added that since the survey's findings were published last Friday, he's received emails from people saying that the problem has been one for years.
"I think the level of the problem described here may alarm some people," he said.
The survey also found that 17 percent of the students polled said they would support the First Amendment being rewritten.
"When you dig down on the question of hate speech ... most college kids think it's OK for the campus to muzzle people who are engaged in hate speech," Freeman said.
