You really have to read the links to get an idea of the scope of the intimidation and retalitory grading practices. The lefty professor intimidating a pro-America Arab student threatens his visa and insists he needs regular psychotherapy for the disease of holding pro-American viewpoints. The righty professor regularly intimidates students for holding pro choice positions and refuses to release his grading methods even after an appeal is made to the Dean.
What kind of children do we have for college professors these days? And parents pay for this crap? Not me, baby. Not going to happen. I've told my kids that Mom and Dad will not be paying for any college with an agenda of political indoctrination. I urge all parents to get with the program.
"Excuse me administration official who wants my cold hard cash, has your board of trustees adopted the Academic Bill of Rights?"
With thanks to Helloooo Chapter Two! for the hat tip.
Update 4:00 PM: King at SCSU Scholars, whom I trust implicitly in matters of higher education, calls the academic bill of rights "overkill" and recommends parents with high school seniors read ISI's Choosing the Right College. Read the whole thing to discover what he suggests parents can do to "get with the program." Personally, I appreciate all the help I can get!
