Minnesota Association of Scholars are hosting the midwest premiere of Evan Coyne Maloney's new documentary Indoctrinate U, which chronicles efforts across the country to force students to accept politically correct ideas or risk humiliation in class, even failing grades.
U of M School of Journalism and Mass Communication Professor Ken Doyle is the president of MAS. “We can’t say yet how big a problem educational indoctrination is in Minnesota,” says Doyle, “but there’s plenty of anecdotal evidence to suggest that there are at least pockets of the problem on many campuses.”
“The idea is not to interfere with professors’ freedom of speech, but to urge them to make sure students, especially undergraduates, are exposed to the full range of views,” Doyle emphasized.
“We want students to insist on hearing all sides of issues,” Doyle says. “We want them to insist on intellectual diversity.”
