Generation Protest

President Silver published an essay about student expectations that protests will be part of their college experience, and the role of educators in helping them learn how to effect change.

Every time they take to the streets — on campus or off, locally or nationally or globally — our students are telling us that they want to remake the world as they wish it to be. Their college experience should be teaching them, in the broadest sense, how to effect that change — and our work as their teachers should involve learning to respond, even if we are sometimes on opposite sides of the table.
