CASE ENTRY

Buchanan v. Alexander

LSU education professor offers advice to students, gets fired. A violation of academic freedom? The Fifth Circuit says no. “We agree with the district court here that Dr. Buchanan’s use of profanity and discussion of her sex life and the sex lives of her students was not related to the subject matter or purpose of training Pre-K–Third grade teachers.”
