More Unethical Ethics in Illinois

InsideHigherEd.com has an article about the ethics quiz in Illinois. The comments following the article are particularly interesting. The ethics training affects all state employees, from part-time student workers to professors. What's most alarming is that the ethics training is sometimes wrong (it claims that sending an email informing people of a political event is illegal, which would be unconstitutional) as well as just stupid and unconnected to higher education. The complete content of the ethics training (in 2004), preceded by my commentary, can be found on my website, http://collegefreedom.org/ilethics.htm
(the Illinois ethics office threatened me for posting this information in the past, claiming that it was copyright protected and should be concealed from the public).
