THE ATLANTIC: Stripping a Professor of Tenure Over a Blog Post.
“Professor John McAdams is being stripped of tenure by Marquette University for writing a blog post that administrators characterize as inaccurate and irresponsible. Academics all over the United States ought to denounce the firing of the 69-year-old, a Harvard Ph.D. who taught courses on American politics and public policy. If tenure can be taken away based upon one controversial blog post, what protection does it offer?”
I don’t necessarily agree with what McAdams did (and I’m not so supportive of tenure either), I do find it distressing that Marquette is moving to fire him and not allowing him to speak freely.
