A new study from a Mason researcher finds that professors who adopt an attitude that is often disparagingly called "politically correct" are as tolerant and fair-minded as those who do not, even if they differ over what they think political life demands of a scholar. The study, titled "Ascriptive Justice: The Prevalence, Distribution and Consequences of Political Correctness in the Academy," was published in the June 2008 issue of the academic journal the Forum.
