Columbia Violence Sparks Demand for Zero-Tolerance Policy

Phil Orenstein writes as follows to New York State Senator Frank Padavan and the other sponsors of #S6336, which proposes that the Academic Bill of Rights be adopted in the state. He has sent the same message to the New York Assembly sponsors of the companion bill:

In regards to the recent violent protest to silence an invited guest at Columbia University, I want to ask for your recommendation on making a minor modification or adding a provision to the current New York Academic Bill of Rights, #S6336 to contain a zero-tolerance policy for the disruption of campus speakers and student events in order to protect the fundamental right of free speech on college campuses.
