PC and the Fast-Food Model for Teaching
Langbert, Mitchell
Academic Questions, v16 n4 p70-78 Sep 2003
The author recounts a tale about impairment of academic freedom that he experienced while teaching in the MBA program of a respected business school. The management department chair restricted the of Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals in a course called "Conflict and Negotiation." The political correctness movement has come full circle when it restricts the use of books, like Alinsky's, that advocate civil rights. Because of this selfcontradiction, the author concludes that left-wing diversity advocates are just point men and women for university administrations aiming to make universities more market driven. (Contains 10 notes.)
