                       TRENDS IN HIGHER EDUCATION

  (Mr. GROTHMAN asked and was given permission to address the House for 
1 minute.)
  Mr. GROTHMAN. Mr. Speaker, I would like to call attention to a 
disturbing trend that is going on in our colleges and universities.
  We all know--or at least anybody on this side of the aisle--from 
talking to college students, they feel there are certain things they 
just can't say. It is going to cost them a grade. When you are dealing 
with young professors, it is going to cost them tenure, and that is the 
intolerance for conservative ideas or religious ideas in America's 
  Lately, we have had universities say they are not going to deal with 
standardized tests anymore, the SAT, that sort of thing. It is another 
way--and people have to remember this. It is fun not to take a test, 
but it is another way to go after people who are at all conservative.
  Right now, you can be as religious as you want, you can be as 
Republican as you want, you can have a lifestyle that includes, for 
example, hunting, and if you get a good SAT score, they have got to let 
you in even though they don't want to, or they will let you in even 
though they don't want to.

  As we get rid of SAT scores, it opens things more to subjective 
determinations, and the liberals who run our universities are going to 
use those subjective determinations to keep our conservatives out of 
the important universities in this country.
