UNC Requires Islamic Reading

The University of North Carolina is in hot water over its required summer reading program. Read about in at CNN.com.

The real problem, however, is not the required reading of Islamic passages. The real issue is the size of the uproar that would burst into being if students were required to read similar Christian passages.

The purpose of education is learning. Students must be exposed to different points of view, assess arguments, and make decisions in order to grow. Frivilous lawsuits do not further this aim. Learning does.
