“Academic freedom is vital”

“The state Republican Party, in a startling abuse of Wisconsin’s open records law, demanded numerous emails from Cronon’s university account, including many pertaining to his scholarly research. The request undermines academic freedom and strikes at the heart of the university, which depends upon a free and open exchange of ideas and critical inquiry. It also violates the privacy of student/teacher communications under federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act regulations and potentially breaches the confidentiality of human research subjects in the sciences.”
