Conservative Prof Launching Course to Challenge Liberal Views in Criminal Justice and More
“a reasoned response to systematic academic malpractice”
This actually sounds fascinating. Will students listen, or will he be subjected to protests?
The College Fix reports:
This conservative professor just rolled out a new class that will blow liberals’ minds
“What does the evidence say about the claims of the Black Lives Matter movement?”
“Is the criminal justice system really systematically racist?”
“Is there really a rape epidemic on our college campuses?”
“What was that you were saying about white privilege?”
“What was that you were saying about patriarchal oppression?”
These are some of the study prompts for a new class to be offered at the University of North Carolina Wilmington called “Issues in Criminal Justice.” Were these topics taught by a left-leaning scholar, the classroom conversations and readings might have gone one way.
But the class is the brainchild of one of the most well-known and outspoken Christian conservative scholars in the nation — criminology Professor Mike Adams — and he promises that students will finally get a chance to hear how those on the right would answer these questions, and more.
He calls the class “a reasoned response to systematic academic malpractice.”
“Please note that whereas political leftists author virtually all of the readings in your other courses, conservatives and libertarians author most of the readings in this course,” the syllabus states. “This is done so that you will be exposed to beliefs that contradict those of the vast majority of your professors. Often, these dissenting views are presented only as caricatures. In this class, you will hear from the proponents of such views directly.”
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
It’s a great idea to offer a course giving the opposing viewpoints. This kind of material is badly needed in all colleges, both in criminal justice and leftist social studies like sociology.
I hope he has another job lined up, because the academic mob will attack him viciously.
Good thing he has tenure.
I believe he had to sue to get it.
To the Leftist mind, being exposed to hearing the truth is much like being exposed to hearing Slim Whitman was to the aliens in “Mars Attacks!”
The effect is similarly violent and involuntarily reflexive.
Ack! Ack! *splat!*
But he needs to be ready. We saw on Friday at the House Judiciary hearing on policing practices in which the other side immediately responded directly to Heather Mac Donald’s claims.
Clearly the Left-leaning criminologists are ready to hit back.
