Textbook by Bill Ayers ‘Required Reading’ for Freshmen at Marquette University

Posted on | December 14, 2013 | 31 Comments

This got written up by Nice Deb two weeks ago at Breitbart, but I missed it until I saw it at College Insurrection:

Students at Marquette University reacted with surprise and dismay when they were informed that a textbook used in a freshman education course was written by William Ayers, former domestic terrorist and founding member of the Weather Underground.
Charlie Kirk, Executive Director of Turning Point USA, asked Marquette students what they thought about the fact that Ayers, a communist revolutionary, had authored the textbook, and recorded their reactions in a video uploaded to YouTube . . .
Marquette lists Ayers book “To Teach The Journey, In Comics” as required reading for the course EDUC 1210: Introduction to Schooling in a Diverse Society.


Imagine their reaction if somebody told students that Nelson Mandela was a pro-Castro terrorist with ties to the Soviet Union. Of course, nobody at Marquette University would tell them that.
