Liberty & Learning: Academic Freedom for Teachers and Students

Nebraska AAUP member David Moshman (Educational Psychology, UNL) has recently published Liberty & Learning: Academic Freedom for Teachers and Students (Heinemann, 2009).

In this book, Moshman defines Academic Freedom as intellectual freedom in educational and research contexts. As such, it is a right available to teachers and students at all levels of education. The book outlines the basic principles of academic freedom, then offers the reader dozens of life case studies, from elementary through postsecondary education, to demonstrate the workings of those principles in real classroom situations.
