Outrage of the Day: Texas A&M

I feel an Aggie joke coming on…and I have NO animus for Aggies, but jeez, this is stupid.

From the story:

A program that teaches college journalism students about using public information laws has run into an ironic dilemma. Teachers at one of the state’s largest university systems can be disciplined — even fired — if they ask students to file an open records request with their school.

While a spokesman for the Texas A&M University System said Tuesday the rule does not prevent students from getting public information, an official with the organization sponsoring the program called it an unlawful policy that censors the public’s right to know.
