Stuart Varney: Universities are suppressing achievement by putting a ‘political straitjacket’ on students
‘Varney & Co. host’ Stuart Varney calls out some American universities for imposing their social justice ideologies on students and job applicants.

STUART VARNEY: Universities across the country are imposing a political straightjacket on their students.

Example: At Berkeley in California, they wanted to hire five faculty members to teach biological sciences. All applicants had to attach a 200-word statement of their social justice commitment.
