P-G Supports Academic Freedom! Sometimes

This column in today’s Post-Gazette needs to be saved and used against them in the future:

P-G: Everyone’s right: Even teachers deserve to exercise free speech

Today, the P-G is very upset that some Arizona Republicans are trying to stop teachers from giving their personal political opinions in the classroom.  According to the P-G, teachers should have the fundamental right to free speech, even in class, and that anything less, to paraphrase the P-G, is a perversion of civil rights!

I’ll remember this the next time the P-G tells us that teachers have no right to talk about Intelligent Design, or pro-life, or the defense of marriage, or Christianity in general in the classroom.   I’ll remember it, and I’ll mail their own column to them showing them what hypocrites they are.
