Academic Freedom Scores Come From Behind Victory at Baylor University
On this episode of ID The Future we report the good news that legal scholar and CSC Fellow Francis Beckwith has been granted tenure at Baylor University.
Last school year Beckwith was denied tenure, in part for his legal opinion that it is constitutional to teach about intelligent design in science classes. The denial of tenure to a legal scholar as acclaimed as Beckwith ignited a several month controversy, which has happily ended with Beckwith receiving tenure after appealing the original decision.
