Do you think university professors should have to pass a criminal background check?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on September 29, 2007
“Yeah. For me, it would be important to know if my professor was involved in any type of violent or sexual crime.”
“No. I think they should be hired based on the merits that qualify them for the position and not on the basis of a background check.”
“Yes, I believe so. It’s a respectable position, and they’re not exactly respectable if they have or are trying to cover up a criminal background.”
“I think that university professors should undergo the same scrutiny as any other state employee.”
