Accuracy in Academia

Accuracy in Academia (AIA) is a non-profit organization that seeks to combat liberal/leftist bias on campus, which it characterizes as liberal or communist "indoctrination", and to stand up for the rights of conservative students. It is run by executive director Daniel J. Flynn, the author of the book [http://www.randomhouse.com/author/results.pperl?authored=58411 "Why the Left Hates America"] . The academic watchdog group was created by Accuracy in Media (AIM) founder Reed Irvine, a former Federal Reserve economist. It is characterized by People for the American Way as a right-wing organization [http://www.pfaw.org/pfaw/general/default.aspx?oid=16205] .

The AIA is opposed to multicultural education and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which was enacted to eliminate sex discrimination|discrimination against women in higher education. The group also is opposed to abortion. The group initially was criticized by prominent conservatives, such as the first Secretary of Education William Bennett, who said at the time of its founding in 1986 that the AIA “a bad idea.” However, it has attracted support among many conservatives in the past 20 years. Conservative writer Dinesh D'Souza has stated, “Accuracy in Academia plays an indispensable role in fighting the political distortions and biases that pass for knowledge on today’s college campuses.”
