Talking in Class about the War


Contributed by Beth Harris

The Students for a Just Peace asked me to share their concerns with all of the IC faculty. As SJP's faculty adviser, I appreciate the students' anxieties about the United States invading Iraq. Joey Cronen, the cochair for education, sends the following note.

The Students for a Just Peace would like to ask members of the Ithaca College faculty to devote a portion of class time the period after the war starts to a discussion about the war. Regardless of whether the war is perceived as courageous or calamitous, it will have a significant emotional impact on many students. Furthermore, the sheer magnitude of the event, in our opinion, warrants some class discussion.

Thank you very much for your attention,
