Does this not reek of surveillance and hence, loss of academic freedom?
Texas Conference of AAUP Newsletter
This Resolution was unanimously adopted by the Texas Conference Executive Committee.The Texas Conference of the American Association of University Professors requests repeal of Texas House Bill 2504. This logistically burdensome and unfunded legislative mandate constrains classroom innovation and faculty-student interaction while substantially raising costs. The bill has a chilling effect on the ability of students and faculty to openly and honestly discuss controversial subjects in the classroom. It allows persons opposed to open discussion of con- troversial scientific and cultural positions to target such discussions by requiring faculty to post detailed descriptions of material to be covered in their classes on keyword searchable websites. It is a clear assault upon the principles of academic freedom long supported by AAUP.
