Academic Freedom TX style

 Victory! After so many people showed up to testify against this resolution, Chair of the Subcommittee on Higher Education Judith Zaffarini declared that she would not have a “culture war” in her committee. Senator Wentworth withdrew his bill.

There is currently a resolution before the Subcommittee on Higher Education that echoes the language of Horowitz’s grossly misnamed “Academic Bill of Rights.” scr-3.pdf

WITHDRAWN!

Along with a number of students and some great organizers from Free Exchange on Campus, I went on 3/26 to testify before the house subcommittee. Senator Wentworth didn’t bother showing up to present his resolution, so it was tabled. I’ll post my testimony and others’ later, so stay tuned . . .
