[Ed. – Taxpayers getting their money’s worth again. Stick to the football, UWW. You’re way better at it.]
A literature professor at the University of Wisconsin–Whitewater has offered students in her courses extra credit for attending a Thursday evening rally against budget cuts to the University of Wisconsin System proposed by Gov. Scott Walker.
The professor is Beth Lueck.
On Wednesday, Lueck notified students in her freshman English class about the exciting extra-credit assignment.
“UWW students have organized a non-partisan [sic] rally with students, faculty, and community members on the UW Whitewater campus against Gov. Walker’s proposed $300 million cut to the UW system, along with speaking out against attacks on shared governance and faculty,” Lueck wrote. …
“You may get extra credit by joining the rally or by observing it or by protesting it,” the taxpayer-funded professor explained.
Lueck’s faculty webpage at the school’s website suggests that none the courses she teaches at UW–Whitewater are remotely related to politics.
