INTELLECTUAL FREEDOM, AND THE LACK OF IT

Here's a disgusting story about a solid, almost straight-A student. He got an A- on a paper he wrote for one of his graduate courses in education, but as a result of what he wrote, he has been kicked out of school.

What was his mortal sin?

He dared to write in his "Classroom Management Plan" last November that multiculturalism has no place in his classroom and that he will firmly discipline his students, including using corporal punishment when appropriate, if legal, and the child's parents are involved. He wrote that, unless situations dictate differently, he would treat all students alike. He would positively reinforce good behavior, heavily involve parents, and build respect instead of self-esteem.
