"Such a classroom environment does not come naturally after a long period of political correctness made "feeling comfortable" on campus a more crucial value than being challenged. A 2010 study by the Association of American Colleges and Universities found that only 30.3 percent of college seniors agreed with the statement, "It is safe to have unpopular views on campus." For faculty, the sad number was 16.7 percent, the lowest of any group."

Popular Seattle Teacher Forced Out for Teaching Kids About Racism

Popular Seattle Teacher Forced Out for Teaching Kids About Racism | Social Justice in Student Affairs | Scoop.it
The battle at Seattle’s Center School raises the question—how should schools teach students about tolerance and discrimination?
Becky Evans's insight:

If a student felt like an environment is "intimidating," that's worth looking into, but it doesn't mean that we need to throw out both instructor and curriculum! Use it as a learning moment to provide additional support during the challenging conversations; don't just stop having them.
