University Oversight of Professors' Teaching Activities: A Professor's Academic Freedom Does Not Mean Freedom from Institutional Regulation
Fossey, Richard
Journal of Personnel Evaluation in Education, v19 n3-4 p159-173 Dec 2007
This article reviews federal case law that address a college instructor's right to academic freedom over classroom activities. This review shows that the federal courts have defined a college instructor's academic freedom rights narrowly in terms of the instructor's classroom activities. Institutions have a great deal of latitude to regulate an instructor's classroom speech, grading practices, and general manner of teaching a particular college-level course.
