Because it’s “not considered higher education.” They’re specifically going after professors and trying to get them fired.
Byrd and her supporters, including state Rep. Calvin Hill, R-Canton, said they will team with the Christian Coalition and other religious groups to pressure fellow lawmakers and the University System Board of Regents to eliminate the jobs.
“Our job is to educate our people in sciences, business, math,” said Hill, a vice chairman of the budget-writing House Appropriations Committee. He said professors aren’t going to meet those needs “by teaching a class in queer theory.”
It seems to me that Hill and Byrd don’t really seem to grasp the purpose of higher education. Hint: It’s not Christian Soldier Vocational School.
