Common Sense, Unmasked
What happens when a state chooses politics over science?
Michael Phillips has taught history at Collin College in Texas for the past 14 years, but after speaking out about the school’s anti-masking policy his contract was not renewed. Which makes him the fourth faculty member to lose his job there since Neil Matkin assumed the role of College President in 2015.
Amna Khalid spoke with Phillips about what led to his firing, and about academic freedom more generally in American higher education.
