OU Among the Nation's Worst Colleges for Free Speech
"President David Boren put his school, the University of Oklahoma, on the list by summarily expelling two students because of their 'leadership role in a racist and exclusionary chant,'" George Leef writes. "The First Amendment prevents public universities from punishing students just on account of their speech, no matter how offensive. As [Greg] Lukianoff comments, many schools have taken Oklahoma’s action as an 'all clear' signal that they can 'toss freedom of speech and basic fairness out the window.'"
