Bill Ayers, professor and Weather Underground co-founder, to speak at WMU Wednesday
KALAMAZOO, MI – The co-founder of the militant anti-war group the Weather Underground will be speaking at Western Michigan University Wednesday.
Bill Ayers, a retired Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois at Chicago, will speak at 7 p.m. in the Fetzer Center's Kirsch Auditorium, WMU said in a press release.
His presentation, which is free and open to the public, is titled "Teaching Free People: What Democracy Demands in its Schools." He also will meet with faculty and students while on campus, WMU said.
...This presumably means that his visit is paid for by Western, and indirectly Michigan taxpayers.
Ayers' appearance is co-sponsored by the College of Education and Human Development; the Departments of Educational Leadership, Research and Technology; Teaching, Learning and Educational Studies; English; and Sociology; and the Lewis Walker Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnic Relations.
Ayers was previously publicly supported by seven WMU professors in 2008.
