Professors refuse to give the government information on Brexit lessons

Academics refuse to give Government information on what they are teaching students about Brexit. Academics sent out a petition to the Minister of State for Universities after Tory MP and government whip Chris Heaton-Harris asked all UK universities for a list of teachers’ names who teach about Brexit, as well as for details about what is being taught. After receiving the enquiry in a letter addressed by the House of Commons, Prof. Brooks, the Dean of Durham Law School, decided to start a petition and managed to gather nearly 2,4000 signatures within a week. He was concerned that “while all North East universities quickly refused to provide the information” others would feel obliged to respond to the MP’s request, declared on the Chronicle Live. https://twitter.com/thom_brooks/s
