Good News for Professors

In a case involving free speech and academic freedom at private institutions and faculty responsibilities toward students, the Wisconsin Supreme Court on Friday ruled, 4-2, in favor John McAdams, the Marquette University professor who was suspended for criticizing a graduate student instructor on his blog in 2014.

This is really good news for all professors who don’t hide in the ivory tower and instead engage with the public. This case represented the first step towards shutting up professors completely. I’m very glad Marquette was defeated and the professor won.
