But almost every university has policies prohibiting such harassment [of students who say unpopular things] along with independent appeals procedures to protect students and the integrity of the academic environment. [David] Horowitz's restrictions [in his proposed Academic Bill of Rights ], in contrast, would invite outside monitoring of the classroom, creating hostility between students and professors, and politicizing the environment.The students who agree with me want our elected leaders to focus on addressing our real concerns: student loans, skyrocketing tuition and the post-graduation job market.Asheesh Kapur Siddique,
a senior at Princeton University, in an editorial decrying national efforts by both universities and state legislatures to adopt some version of the Horowitz commandments.
