From what little I can I find it was a study/survey of 800 people.
All the articles I am finding about it all link back to the WSJ article though. And trying to do on my phone.
Yeah, it looks like they do a bunch of surveys for right-leaning sites. It would be nice to see the study.
You understand they do this on campus already?
What do you think "free speech zones" are if not "regulated free speech?"
"There are many conservative groups that very opposed to speech codes, because they're seen as politically correct," Kessler points out. "Those sorts of conservatives might find Ben Carson's proposal surprising, because it sounds like it's proposing to fight back against what he perceives as left-wing views on campus by imposing more government regulation." That's the opposite of many libertarian and conservative groups, which seek to eliminate regulation of speech on campuses.
Students, faculty and administrators want our campuses to be free and safe, but we also acknowledge that the imperatives of freedom and safety are sometimes in conflict. A campus free from violence is an absolute necessity for a true education, but a campus free from challenge and confrontation would be anathema to it. We must not protect ourselves from disagreement; we must be open to being offended for the sake of learning, and we must be ready to give offense so as to create new opportunities for thinking.

You think indoctrination stops at high school? that's funny. You know how many professors I've had that used their class as a soap box to spew opinionated BS that has nothing to do with the subject. I had to pay for those crap classes.
