In what I consider to be the greatest threat to our nation's future- hijacking America's education system - score one for the good guys.................Pennsylvania passed legislation to protect student's academic freedom
“The vote last night was the first step in protecting intellectual diversity and academic freedom at Pennsylvania’s colleges and universities,” said David Horowitz, author of the Academic Bill of Rights. “The Students’ Academic Freedom Resolution will ensure that all Pennsylvania students, regardless of their political and religious beliefs, will be treated respectfully by professors and administrators in the state’s institutions of higher learning.”
He added, “It is crucial now that the full Pennsylvania Assembly pass this bill. Just last week, the American Council on Education in conjunction with 27 other higher education organizations issued a statement supporting key principles of this legislation including the ideas that “neither students nor faculty should be disadvantaged or evaluated on the basis of their political opinions” and that students and faculty members whose academic freedom has been violated must have access to redress through official and well-publicized grievance procedures on campus. The Students’ Academic Freedom Resolution would support putting these principles into practice on Pennsylvania’s campuses.”
Students for Academic Freedom is a national initiative dedicated to restoring academic diversity and educational values to America’s institutions of higher learning. The organization recommends that colleges and universities adopt an Academic Bill of Rights to ensure that these principles are respected. The Academic Bill of Rights is available on the organization’s website at www.studentsforacademicfreedom.org.
