ARIZONA STATE U LETS STUDENTS ORGANIZE ANTI-TRUMP PROTEST INSTEAD OF TAKING FINAL EXAM

[4/19/17]  An Arizona State University professor has allowed a group of students to organize anti-Trump protests instead of taking the final exam in their human-rights class.

Angeles Maldonado, a professor at the university, has given her class taking Global Politics of Human Rights an option – either take an exam or start a group project, The Arizona Republic reported.

A group of about 20 students decided to create a project and the best way to do it would be to start an anti-Trump demonstration to voice their concerns about the perceived human rights violations by the administration.

“The class decided that as a group project they wanted to make their voices heard about the issues that are affecting them today, so instead of just reading about the human-rights violations, they’d speak out about the current violations that are happening,” said professor Maldonado, adding that it was her duty to support the students’ decision.
