Academic Freedom: Its Relevance and Challenges for Public Universities in Ghana Today
Owusu-Ansah, Collins
Journal of Education and Practice, v6 n5 p173-179 2015
There have been various shapes of opinions shared on the concept of academic freedom. This concept means different things to many and different people. Those outside the University view academic freedom with some level of suspicion. Even among the academia, academic freedom is rarely understood. To foster the growth of knowledge and its dissemination, the frontiers of academic freedom must be widened and embraced. This paper seeks to explore the frontiers of academic freedom; the various limitations practitioners face with the concept and how to make the concept relevant today.
