    Nope I wouldn't, and I explained it badly. My fault.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Issues that undermine academic freedom or more broadly have a harmful impact on student learning outcomes should be addressed sooner rather than in the long-term. Today's graduates need to be prepared to have a chance to be as fully productive members of society (workforce and in life in general) as possible. If they cannot be fully productive, that would have adverse implications for the nation's productivity, competitiveness, economy, and finances. In short, even if my answer didn't fully convey it, I believe it is imperative that significant situations that deprive students of a good education should be treated as urgent matters by colleges/universities, their accrediting bodies, and also public policy leaders given the investments made in higher education. As a caveat, I do not believe public policy officials should attempt to dictate curricula. Their focus should be on outcomes, graduation success, etc.

    We all want the best education for our children, however what we see going on increasingly is a climate where education levels are dropping while cost per student, we are told are ever increasing, in some cases exceeding some $10 grand per student per year, and as a parent I watch tuition's increase, and arrogant individuals scream that they should have tenure, and not be able to be fired for their negligence to actually teach instead of indoctrinate. You may not agree, but there are more parents like myself out there that are left asking what the hell am I paying for?

    First of all, I'm not even remotely surprised that there were jeers. We are in a very heated political climate right now where the divisions between left and right are as sharp as ever. Secondly, as others have pointed out... the article went immediately for the outrage button because a few people (yes, a few people) jeered and made snide comments. The guy got to make his entire point and the few people that were heckling were almost drowned out by the loud applause. I find it interesting that the article didn't mention the applause after the statement in question nor did they mention the loud applause after he was done speaking. This article is meant to outrage people and it did its job. This is the kind of crap that keeps the lines between left and right as clear as ever. It's sad that people are trying to pin the action of a few misguided idiots on all people on the left simply because it bolsters your poorly constructed stereotypes about liberals. Though, I'm sure it serves your purely partisan purposes, it does nothing to further the conversation and instead turns it into an illogical screaming match like most of the discussions end up being. Trust me, those few misguided fools in the crowd who decided to heckle this brave young man are in the extreme minority.

    Partisan hack alert. Maybe you could actually read my comments before making idiotic replies to them that add absolutely nothing to discussion?

    That's right -- God forbid you apologise for a mistake. Instead, just keep getting deeper and deeper into ****e so you don't lose face.
