Arizona senate rejects "opt out" bill

In good news for academia, the Arizona senate sensibly rejected the law that would have given students the right to demand alternative assignments for anything they found offensive.

The bill made it out of committee a few weeks ago, but a few sensible senators realized that this was quite the extremist bill.

As a side note, Tony Palmeri and commenter "Diamond Dave" are having an extended conversation about faculty due process (2 posts down), so don't miss it!
