If ever a state college deserved being banned…Iowa State definitely hits the mark.
Higher centers are to educate, not indoctrinate.
And for sure should not be hiring professors that threaten to discipline students that disagree with BLM and leftist standing points.
No homophobic or "All Lives Matter opinions welcomed in her classes.
So much for TRUE diversity that universities claim to encourage.
Labeled a "GIANT WARNING," the portion of the syllabus banned "instances of othering," which it defined as "sexism, ableism, homophobia," and a variety of other things. "The same goes for any papers/projects: you cannot choose any topic that takes at its base that one side doesn’t deserve the same basic human rights as you do (ie: no arguments against gay marriage, abortion, Black Lives Matter, etc). I take this seriously," it added.
Young America's Foundation, a conservative youth organization, released a screenshot of the syllabus on Monday, claiming that it came from a professor named Chloe Clark. According to Iowa State's website, the course, English 250, is for "written, oral, visual, and electronic composition." The course is required as part of students' "Communication Proficiency" requirement for graduation.
Definitely has garnered comments from the Twitterverse.
Ms. Clark's stand is way off base and many agree.
Wonder if the students in the above picture represent a good cross-section of Americans?
In an almost affront to students intelligence, Clark offered slights towards the conservative thinkers.
According to theBlaze regarding her syllabus that lists the areas that can't be touched without the threat of being removed.
GIANT WARNING: any instances of othering that you participate in intentionally (racism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, sorophobia, transphobia, classism, mocking of mental health issues, body shaming, etc) in class are grounds for dismissal from the classroom. The same goes for any papers/projects: you cannot choose any topic that takes at its base that one side doesn't deserve the same basic human rights as you do (ie: no arguments against gay marriage, abortion, Black Lives Matter, etc). I take this seriously.
Further, Clark wrote in the syllabus that her class will discuss books that "may contain violent or disturbing imagery" and offered to provide students with a "trigger warning."
"If, at any point, you would like a Trigger Warning before viewings/readings that may contain this imagery, please let me know and I'm happy to provide them!" she wrote.
Nice that she is open to real dialog in her indoctrination...sorry higher learning classroom.
Potential students and those already registered need to reconsider this as a place to attend.
Iowa State is not the only choice in town. Especially if Chloe Clark represents their values.
This tweet makes a solid point.
It's easier to have the right values in the first place then to be "deprogrammed."
Iowa State needs to take a look at this professor and syllabus. Monies can be kept from their program.
Actually not a bad idea.
