Bottom line, the unions have poisoned the pot, not unlike the leaders of various other institutions, FBI for example, that also promote leftism.

Let me add a bit more perspective. Again, I know nothing about how the universities operate.
But in the public schools, the unions have absolutely nothing to do with what is being taught there. Trust me on this. When courses of study are drawn up, union input is neither requested nor accepted.
As I noted earlier, in the old days teacher committees would pick curricula. No union officials would be on those committees. Now everything is chosen by idiotic educational consultants hired by the school board. Again, no union officials are involved.
I have plenty of beefs with teacher unions. But they are not to blame for the junk that is being taught today.
Now a bit of a side story.
I primarily taught physics. Well, torque is a central topic in physics. But I was not to teach anything about torque! Torque - for some reason - was not in the physics curriculum chosen for us by the experts. I taught torque lessons anyway...just when observers were not in the room.
