Washington Free Beacon은 토요일에 Lee가 대학에 말했다고 보도했다. “이니셔티브가 진행되지 않을 것이라고 사무실에 알렸습니다.”
“우리는 대학 캠퍼스에서 활발한 토론을 환영합니다, but taxpayer dollars should never be used to fuel a divisive, 급진적 의제,” 그는 덧붙였다.
Lee’s comments came shortly after the proposal initially surfaced in the Beacon. The outlet had obtained an all-faculty email showing the university offering a $ 1,500 stipend after professors redesigned their curricula, with another $ 1,500 after teaching the redesigned course. According to the email, 15-20 faculty members were supposed to be selected for the program, which would have begun in spring 2022.
이것의. 마샤 블랙번, R-Tenn., told Fox News Digital last week that the program was an inappropriate use of taxpayer funds.
“The university should be encouraging their students to be independent thinkers, expanding their world view, learning how to be lifelong learners and respectful of all,” said Blackburn in a statement provided to Fox News Digital on Tuesday.
“Taxpayer dollars should not be used to fund a woke social justice agenda.”
