Did you ever study anything controversial in school?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on December 5, 2005
“I took Dennis Dailey’s human sexuality class. There was a lot of controversy about it, but I found it interesting and very educational.”
“I went to a suburban school, and they didn’t want anything controversial there. … An English teacher did let me do an alternative assignment about the Patriot Act.”
“No. I went to school back around 1977. They weren’t as into banning books as they are now.”
“I’m from Nigeria, so anything that had to do with politics was controversial, and we studied a pro-democracy magazine while we were under a dictatorship.”
