A Victory for David Horowitz's "Student Bill of Rights." By: Bob Cohen
WorldNetDaily.com | Tuesday, April 14, 2009

Elected student leaders at American River College in Sacramento, Calif., have adopted a resolution that seeks to protect classmates from the "anti-religious and political indoctrination" of professors and others on campus.

"I think we have accomplished a historic and very significant act today by passing this resolution to advocate for a Student Bill of Rights," said student Rep. George Popko, who authored the resolution.

The measure was adopted by an 8-1 vote.

"The purpose of the resolution is to go on record asking the administration to adopt the Student Bill of Rights as official campus policy," the 22-year-old councilman said.

The resolution models activist David Horowitz's "Student Bill of Rights," a bill which was introduced to the California senate as SB 5 in 2005.

Popko says he plans to present a Student Bill of Rights Resolution containing those provisions on May 3 before the General Assembly of the Student Senate of California Community Colleges, an organization representing 2.7 million college students.
