Students Speech Bedevils College Professor

Another example of liberalism gone mad. The student did not violate any laws nor did he violate the rules of the assignment.

Sounds a great deal like our current political system who are all PAID by taxpayers belittling and bashing those same taxpayers. Talking about biting the hand that feeds you. It is stories like this that convinces me that higher education isn’t.

The lower court in Los Angeles issued a preliminary injunction against the school,
