Butler University in Indiana has decided to offer a new course which is pure anti-Trump indoctrination. Can you even imagine something like this happening when Obama was president?
The Indy Star reports:
Butler’s ‘Trumpism’ course description draws backlash
Butler University said it is reviewing its course description practices after it received backlash for a fall 2017 course offering that focused on the election of President Donald Trump.
The class, a one-time special topics course scheduled, is called “Trumpism & U.S. Democracy.” Its course description received attention after it characterized the president as “perpetuating sexism, white supremacy, xenophobia, nationalism, nativism, and imperialism,” the Washington Times reported. That description has since been removed.
The school released a statement Thursday saying it will be reviewing its practice of accepting preliminary course descriptions for these classes.
“The faculty member has provided an updated course description that clarifies that students will be looking at the rise of President Trump as a political and social phenomenon and are not required to participate in activism,” the university said in a statement posted on its Facebook page. “The University will review its practice of accepting preliminary course descriptions for Special Topics classes.
“Like all universities, Butler University values academic freedom and the liberties this affords its faculty members. At the same time, Butler strives to be a hospitable forum for the civil exchange of ideas.”
America needs a makor overhaul in higher education.
