Outrageous: Wisconsin Professor Gives Students Extra Credit to Protest Governor Walker

A left-wing, radical professor at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater sent a memo to her students telling them she would give them extra credit for attending a protest against Wisconsin’s Republican Governor Scott Walker.

Breitbart reports, “Wisconsin Reporter at Watchdog.com M.D. Kittle reported that Professor Beth Lueck, a Democrat who ran against – and was defeated by – state Rep. Jim Ott (R), sent the memo to her students on Wednesday.”

The memo states:

“UWW students have organized a non-partisan rally with students, faculty, and community members on the UW Whitewater campus against Gov. Walker’s proposed $300 million cut to the UW system, along with speaking out against attacks on shared governance and faculty. You may get extra credit by joining the rally or by observing it or by protesting it.”

Students were invited to meet “others” for a march on the university campus and to hear speeches by state and local politicians and “various faculty and staff.” A forum on the proposed budget cuts was held afterward.

Though Lueck told Wisconsin Reporter that students were not required to attend the rally, she wrote, “The extra credit opportunity – not an assignment – requires students to write a response to the event or lecture that they attend. The amount of credit given has nothing to do with the views they express.”

Totally disgusting.
