Many of us educators feel like they are walking on eggshells when they express their thoughts in the classroom and when they are faced with unsophisticated student comments. The discourse is rife with loaded terms such as “coddling," “trigger warnings,” “political correctness,” “safe spaces.” How do we balance the principles of academic freedom, freedom of speech and expression, and inclusive learning environments? How can we protect ourselves and our students? The authors (one the dean of the Law School at University of California Berkeley and the other the chancellor of University of California Irvine) provide a review of what schools can and cannot do, but, more importantly, discuss what’s at stake when we talk about censorship and hate speech. Come add your perspective to the discussion!
