The Denver Post has an interesting feature on academic freedom and blogging in today’s Denver & the West section. The genesis for the story was DeVry University’s recent firing of a Westminster, CO instructor for making perceived negative comments about the school in her blog. The reporter interviewed me for the story, and also quotes my good friend (and fellow LJer) lynn_s_clark.
DeVry, a for-profit outfit, obviously represents a different situation than you’ll find at traditional schools on the issue of academic freedom, but the reporter does address the broader issue a bit. Let me know what you think.
