RealClearPolitics - Articles - Creating Activists At Ed School: "Nine of the ten programs, the NAS reports, require students to accept the ideology-saturated NASW code of ethics to get a degree in social work. The University of Central Florida says students 'must comply' with the code of ethics if they wish to remain in school. Failure to accept the code constitutes 'academic misconduct' in the University of Michigan program and 'can result in disciplinary action' at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. 'Diversity/multiculturalism' and 'oppression' were among the most common themes in coursework. The report notes, 'Although it's certainly true that racism has been oppressive in American history, it seems question-begging to assume that 'oppression' is a leading cause of poverty in the modern U.S. And it is far from clear that the only pathway to a non-racist or egalitarian society passes through the gateway or multiculturalism.'"
