A professor’s tweets to incoming students at the University of
Wisconsin at Madison have drawn the ire of the campus’s College
Republicans as well as a prominent faculty group, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Sara Goldrick-Rab, a
professor of educational policy and sociology who is also one of the
most prominent voices in the academic Twittersphere, sent the tweets
more than a month ago. To several students who had tweeted their
excitement about enrolling at Madison under the hashtag #FutureBadgers, Ms. Goldrick-Rab sent a link to an op-ed essay from the Journal Sentinel criticizing the removal of tenure protection from state statutes.
