Politically Correct on Campus. ERIC Digest.
Aiex, Nola Kortner
This digest reviews materials which discuss political correctness and its manifestations on college campuses. First presenting opposing definitions of the term (liberal and conservative), the digest then reports on the topic as seen in the research, and offers several suggestions about incorporating the conflicts themselves into the curriculum. The digest concludes by considering whether or not political correctness is really an important issue on college campuses. Contains 21 references. (NKA)
