Arizona’s Leaders And Educators Are Failing Studentkind

Northern Arizona University is in the news once again for less-than tolerant behavior exhibited by professors towards students. Not known for its great scholarship, NAU’s less-than-scholarly scholars seem to have little understanding of academic freedom.

In March, the school earned negative publicity when Campus Reform, a website dedicated to exposing “bias and abuse on the nation’s college campuses,” reported on the case of NAU student, Cailin Jeffers. According to the report, Jeffers received a lower grade on an essay because she used the term ‘mankind’ when referring to humanity. Teaching Fellow, Professor Anne Scott, told Jeffers that ‘mankind’ only refers to men.

As reported by Campus Reform, specifically Scott advised Jeffers, “I will respect your choice to leave your diction choices ‘as is’ and to make whatever political and linguistic statement you want to make by doing so,” the professor wrote. “By the same token, I will still need to subtract a point because your choice will not be made in the letter or spirit of this particular class, which is all about having you and other students looking beneath your assumptions and understanding that ‘mankind’ does not mean ‘all people’ to all people. It positively does not.”
