A professor at Metro State College in Denver, CO is being criticized for assigning an anti Palin essay for his students. Andrew Hallam told his students to write an essay with three criticisms about Sarah Palin’s speech at the Republican National Convention. They were told to undermine and criticize her speech and posture. Only a handful of students objected to the very biased assignment.
I want my kids to benefit from a liberal arts education but I expect it to be unbiased. Open to discussion certainly, even heated debate is fantastic but it needs to be balanced.
