They (Obama's liberals) always go back to academia.

    First returned link:

    http://isteve.blogspot.com/2012/01/are-schoolteachers-as-dumb-as-education.html

    So, as has been pointed out to you before, education majors do not equal teachers, and this goes for almost all professors who are educated in their discipline, rather than education.

    That's funny
    Are you sure you read the whole article?
    I'll ask again. Where did I say professors?

    I know I routinely think of people in the 67-82nd percentile as the intellectually weakest in society ...

    So Napolitano is going into academia. What did Michael Chertoff do when he left the Bush Administration?

    I'm afraid that I am not sure what you are getting at, with so little to go on.

    You said 'teachers', and professors are college and university 'teachers', so...

    Well, in one post he said those that "teach" which would clearly encompass teachers and professors so the quibbling seems worthless.

    Another way to look at the data, which shows that the IQs of elementary teachers, high school teachers, and college professors all rank above average. It really just doesn't seem like your claim is grounded in the evidence.

    If by the title of the thread
    It implies academia is something undesirable.

    that being the case- it appears that many conservatives(on this message board at least) view as desirable the opposite of academia.

    ie---ignorance, superstition, and cliches

    Your leaps and bounds need help. Lots of it.
    And, for the thousandth time...not a conservative. Not even close.
