Study finds less than 5% of Colleges Protect 1st Amendment Rights

This isn’t shocking news [1] as colleges like to impose speech codes and free speech zones on their campuses:

“A new study says that less than 5 percent of colleges and universities surveyed have policies in place that respect the First Amendment right to free speech, while more than half are violating either the First Amendment or free speech promises made by these schools.”

“The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education [2] is an educational nonprofit that reviews 437 college and university speech codes every year in an effort to “defend the individual rights of students and faculty members at colleges across the country,” said Azhar Majeed, director of FIRE’s Individual Rights Education Program.”
