Political Intervention and Science in Latin America.
Street, James H.
Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, v37 n2 p14-23 Feb 1981
The effects of politicization (government intervention) of universities on scientific achievement and technological development in Latin America are discussed. Imposition of political loyalty tests, dismissal of teachers and research investigators, and supervision of normal student life have deprived teaching and research institutions of academic freedom and qualified teachers, lowering scientific output.
