Sometimes, we take the wrong things in educational institutions more seriously than the actual education. Case in point:
“He Didn't Say Stomp on Jesus” http://www.insidehighered.com/news/2013/03/28/professor-whose-exercise-caused-stomp-jesus-controversy
“Towson U. Responds to Patrols by White Student Union” http://www.insidehighered.com/quicktakes/2013/03/28/towson-u-responds-patrols-white-student-union
The ‘nappy hair’ incident from 1999 in New York City http://topics.nytimes.com/topics/reference/timestopics/people/s/ruth_sherman/index.html
Knee jerk reactions by people without having all the facts. We do remember what academic freedom is correct? Let us give people or groups of people the benefit of the doubt before going on the warpath. We have to believe in inherent goodness or we will become cynical and lost (of course please continue to pay attention, trust but verify).
The purpose of education is to educate, and the learning never stops.
