Campus Reform reported on Professor Deming’s remarks in an op-ed:

David Deming, a professor of arts and sciences at the University of Oklahoma, called the gravitation of millennials towards Bernie Sanders a “symptom of our failure to educate them” in an op-ed published Saturday.

“It’s disheartening that an avowed socialist is a viable candidate for president of the United States. Socialism is a dead end. For hundreds of years, it has failed everywhere it’s been adopted. The enthusiasm of our youth for the candidacy of Bernie Sanders is a symptom of our failure to educate them, not only in history, government and economics, but also basic morality,” Deming wrote.
