UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA FACULTY SENATE RESOLUTION ON TEXTBOOK DISCLAIMERS
The following statement was adopted and passed by the Faculty Senate of the University of Oklahoma Norman Campus on Monday, 10 April 2000:
The faculty of the University of Oklahoma at the Norman campus takes very seriously its charge to educate the future generations of Oklahomans. We therefore oppose the imposition of political constraints on the methods or results of academic disciplines in public schools at any level. Academic intellectual enterprises should expose theories and opinions to spirited professional review by peers. Requirements of disclaimers, provisional acceptances or other such restrictions on textbooks or other classroom materials compromise both the intellectual process and the results and therefore are unacceptable.
