Indiana University of Pennsylvania To Lose Its Accreditation Over Student Kicked out?
Fox News has reported that Indiana University of Pennsylvania expelled a student for "claiming there are two genders" in a class on Christianity.
"This action could mean Indiana University of Pennslylvania has expelled both Science and Christianity at the same time and if the student is not re-instated the college should be subject to having their accreditation reviewed by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education which Public Advocate will write along with the Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos as she oversees accreditation by the MSCHE," says Eugene Delgaudio.
Fox news reports:
A religious studies major was barred from Christianity class at Indiana University of Pennsylvania for saying during class that there are only two genders.
Lake Ingle, a senior at the university, said he was silenced and punished by IUP Professor Alison Downie for questioning her during a Feb. 28 "Christianity 481: Self, Sin, and Salvation" lecture.
After showing a 15-minute TED Talk by transgender ex-pastor Paula Stone Williams discussing the "reality" of "mansplaining," "sexism from men," and "male privilege," the professor asked the women in the class to share their thoughts. When no women in the class said anything, Ingle spoke up, challenging the professor on biology and the gender wage gap.
He told the class that the official view of biologists is that there are only two genders.
The feminist professor booted him from class and asked him not to come back. She referred him to the public university's Academic Integrity Board (AIB). Ingle needs to complete the class to graduate at the end of the semester.
