It is no secret that the far left has infiltrated higher education. But Peter Wood, president of the National Association of Scholars, says his organization is doing all it can to expose the spread of woke ideology on America’s college campuses.
The National Association of Scholars operates a cancel culture tracker to document each time a faculty member at a college or university is canceled by his or her employer. The group now has tracked hundreds of cases, Wood says.
“We decided once the numbers started to pile up that it would be a good thing to have one place where we can go to see how often this is happening,” Wood says. “Virtually every week we get approached by another faculty member at some college or university saying, ‘What can I do?'”
Wood joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to explain the biggest issues he sees in higher education and what can be done to resolve them. He also discusses why the University of North Carolina denied tenure to Nikole Hannah-Jones, author of The New York Times’ controversial 1619 Project.
