What University Teachers Should Be Allowed to Say Publicly

Reader comment on item: Profs Who Hate America

Submitted by Frank A Ferguson (United States), Nov 13, 2002 at 20:46

If a professor wants to publicly disagree with American policy, one should resign one's position with the University. After all, they are there to teach, not to publicize adverse opinions to American policy. If they continue to espouse notions contrary to American
policy, they should be fired. I have nothing against their private interpretations but only against their public announcements to students who are there for learniing.
