Academic freedom, or lack thereof.
You just have to hope that this isn't true:
[The] department chair [told me] to change my World Religions curriculum to exclude certain opinions and facts:
- Students should not be allowed to ask whatever questions they want in class
- Nothing should be mentioned in class, textbooks, or examinations that could possibly open up Judaism to criticism, especially any mention of Zionism
- Nothing related to Palestinians or Islamic beliefs about Jerusalem should be mentioned
- Discussion of Zionism or the Palestinian issue was "disrespectful to any Jews in the class"
