“Boards gone wild”

I stole the title of the post from Dean Dad, but you should really check out the Inside Higher Ed story on this one:

Last week, faculty members and students — the latter with tape over their mouths to symbolize what they say the trustees are doing to their freedoms — flocked to a board meeting to protest the plans that appear to be dividing the college. Not only do the critics say that academic freedom is in danger, but they charge that the board’s policies in some instances would violate state law.

Major changes include adopting Horowitz’s ‘Academic Bill of Rights’ and giving the board control over the student newspaper.  Oh, and trying to claim the authority to set the initial pay of each new faculty hire… while there is a union in place.

This is ugly.
