Kutztown Prof Gives Extra Credit For DNC “Volunteers”

As if the line between political organizing and academic pursuits weren’t blurred enough. “At least one Kutztown University professor offered students extra credit Tuesday to participate in a rally against the GOP tax plan,” Anthony Gockowski writes on the Campus Reform site. “‘Please join your faculty as we rally against the GOP Tax Bill that has serious implications to you and on Higher Education. This is an opportunity to gain additional extra credit,’ the email states, with a bolded subject line of ‘Additional Extra Credit Opportunity!'”

“‘Please join your faculty as we rally against the GOP Tax Bill…This is an opportunity to gain additional extra credit.’    Tweet This”

“While the email was initially drafted by Dr. Mauricia John, a professor in the publicly funded school’s Anthropology and Sociology Department, it is unclear whether other professors are offering their students the same opportunity, as the email indicates that the rally is a collaborative effort by the faculty.”
