Re: “UA-Fort Smith silences student

The administration's concern about the survey is unfounded. In-class surveys are generally permitted without having get IRB approval...at least that's the case at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. So, even if there was a survey (which it seems there wasn’t), and if the faculty member approved, no IRB approval would be necessary. Perhaps the UAFS should review their own IRB policies before using them as a pretext for prohibiting free speech, learning, academic discourse, and the promotion of tolerance. I suggest the UAFS administration look up Sec. 1983 of the Civil Rights of 1871. The results otherwise could be costly. Literally.
