Telling the truth by National Endowment for the Humanities ( Book )
4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report examines the problem of the pervasiveness of politics in today's higher education, particularly in the humanities, and argues the need for college and university campuses to return to seeking the truth and telling it rather than straying into the position that the aim of education is for students to become politically transformed. Too often, it is argued, classrooms are being used to advance a political agenda, and for students to resist such efforts in teaching often means to risk ostracism both by their classmates and their professors. The report stresses that seeking higher standards of human endeavor is no longer as important as politically correct thinking. Academic freedom is being transformed to the point where the expression of controversial views (i.e., views differing from those being inculcated by the instructor) now comes with a high social cost; on campus and off, truth is seen as nothing more than different perspectives being advanced by different people to promote their own interests. It is feared that the time is quickly coming where students who are presented with tendentious interpretations of historical events or persons may not know enough to object. The report highlights some of the efforts that have been and are being taken in defense of free speech and academic freedom on college campuses and concludes with a discussion of the role of trustees and administrators in exerting influence to reverse the trend toward infusing doctrinaire politics into teaching.
