Description

Censorship is not simply an attempt to control what is taught in our schools; it is also an infringement on the legal learning rights of students. So argue the contributors to Preserving Intellectual Freedom. Through candid personal examples, discussion of philosophical and psychological considerations, and legal precedents, the authors offer insight into how censorship can come about, its impact and repercussions, and the ways it might be fought. As Brown observes in her introduction, "If we are to meet the challenge of censorship, we must act rather than react." This book is an important step toward meeting that challenge and preserving not just the right to teach, but the right to learn.
