Academic Truth in Advertising


In the Pope Center’s Friday piece, my colleague David Koon discusses a new law in Texas that requires professors to post their syllabi before students register for classes. The purpose of the law is to prevent students from experiencing the unhappy surprise of ending up in a course whose title sounded good but is actually about things the student doesn’t want to waste time on.

Too bad that some profs aren’t really forthcoming about the content of their courses and need this push.
