There is something deeply wrong with our country when arguably the most prestigious university in the nation ranks dead last in protecting free speech on campus.
Recent surveys indicate that nearly two-thirds (62%) of college students say that the climate on college campuses prevents the free expression of ideas.
Rep. Virginia Foxx, who chairs the House Education Committee, has put this dangerous trend in proper perspective:
“The hostile takeover of postsecondary education by political activists, woke faculty, and partisan administrators has established a dangerous trend that threatens students’ constitutionally guaranteed rights and the college education model that should, at its very core, be an open marketplace for all ideas, free of political bias and agendas.”
Doesn’t it seem like yesterday that universities were preaching tolerance? Apparently what is being taught on campus these days is illiberal arts.
