Trump’s Flawed Plan to Promote Campus Free Speech

    By Robert Weissberg March 21, 2019


President Trump recently announced that he would issue an executive order permitting federal research money to be withheld from universities that violated free speech. This may appear as welcome news for fans of open campus debate, but I am not optimistic. The problems here are formidable under the best of conditions but, more important, the real problem is not that conservatives are denied a campus forum but that thousands of students are daily indoctrinated in Leftish nonsense. Pressuring universities to allow Charles Murray to speak freely for an hour or two before a few hundred college students hardly reverse the brainwashing.
