California's Student Bill of Rights Legislation
California Sentate ^ | DECEMBER 6, 2004 | Senator Morrow

SB 5

...the Trustees of the California State University and the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges are hereby directed to, develop guidelines and implement the following principles of the Student Bill of Rights:

(1) Students shall be graded solely on the basis of their reasoned answers and appropriate knowledge of the subjects and disciplines they study, not on the basis of their political or religious beliefs.

(2) Curricula and reading lists in the humanities and social sciences shall respect the uncertainty and unsettled character of all human knowledge in these areas, and provide students with dissenting sources and viewpoints. While teachers are and should be free to pursue their own findings and perspectives in presenting their views, they should consider and make their students aware of other viewpoints. Academic disciplines should welcome a diversity of approaches to unsettled questions

(3) Exposing students to the spectrum of significant scholarly viewpoints on the subjects examined in their courses is a major responsibility of faculty. Faculty shall not use their courses or their positions for the purpose of political, ideological, religious, or anti-religious indoctrination.

(4) The selection of speakers, allocation of funds for speakers' programs, and other student activities shall observe the principles of academic freedom and promote intellectual pluralism.

(5) An environment conducive to the civil exchange of ideas being an essential component of a free university, the obstruction of invited campus speakers, the destruction of campus literature, or any other effort to obstruct this exchange shall not be tolerated

There's going to be alot of professors having a problem with that. Not being able to promote their own liberal agendas as being the only way of thinking, and harrassing or punishing those that oppose there beliefs in class.

There will be many profs who have the typical libera:l"They wern't talking about....ME...when...THEY...made that silly law." Who will in fact continue to make acceptance of their newspeak bullshit a requirement for passing their course.When these same profs are tasked about it they will scream: "DISCRIMINATION!" and howl at the moon,and this law as a result,won't mean shit.


The liberals:"What liberal agenda"........................
