"Political Correctness Vs. Academic Freedom."
Written & Directed by Brian Godawa
Diversity in higher education has been defined in terms of race, gender and class. Critics say this has resulted in a new tyranny of anti-Western prejudice. They claim education has turned into indoctrination of political ideology that undermines the university's goal of intellectual diversity and freedom. Supporters say this is a triumph over white European patriarchy that has unfairly dominated and distorted education with a Western prejudice. They reveal an underlying systemic structure of oppression against minorities in traditional definitions of "knowledge." Who is right? Who is wrong? Where does the truth lie? Or is truth a social construct created in the interest of the ruling class? Godawa explores the battlefield of this raging war of cultural beliefs and educational standards going on in ivy league citadels like Harvard, Princeton and Yale, but also in state schools all around the country.
