Cal-Berkeley Forced to Cancel ‘Decolonizing Palestine’ Course

It does sound like a political indoctrination course, so it’s a good call by Berkeley:

The University of California, Berkeley was forced to cancel a course on decolonizing Palestine after conceding that it violated policies against “political indoctrination” in the classroom.

The one-credit course explicitly stated that it would “explore the possibilities of a decolonized Palestine,” even requiring students to present “decolonial alternatives to the current situation,” which some have taken as a clear indication of the course’s politically biased nature.
