Depressing faculty politics at my alma mater:
Brooklyn College’s death wish
Sure I know colleges can be vipers nest of politics and agendas, but this sounds even worse than usual.
How low my alma mater has fallen. College should be the last place where conformity to opinion, subservience to authority and a lack of critical thinking are encouraged, in faculty OR students.
I thought that I didn’t (yet) live in Margaret Atwood’s Gilead or the Heinlenian world of Nehemiah Scudder…
Teacher sues over limits of curriculum
In Maine of all places.
I’m the kind of would-be teacher who would lock horns with a schoolboard just like this guy is doing, too.
But this is just as bad as the whole brouhaha over Evolution being taught in Kansas.
