Nikki Haley of South Carolina has opted not to veto a measure in the state’s 2014-15 budget that would penalize two universities by a total of nearly $70,000 for assigning books with gay themes, reports The State, a newspaper in Columbia, S.C. Under the budget, the College of Charleston and the University of South Carolina-Upstate will have to spend $52,000 and $17,000, respectively, to teach the U.S. Constitution and other founding documents, “including the study of and devotion to American institutions and ideals.” The budget will take effect on July 1. The South Carolina House of Representatives initially voted to strip the universities of the funds outright, but it later opted, in tandem with state senators, to direct the money to the teaching of the founding documents.” (via The Chronicle of Higher Education)

S.C. Senate Is Urged to Reject Penalties for Colleges Over Gay-Themed Books

“Top officials of the American Association of University Professors, the Association of College and Research Libraries, the Modern Language Association, and other groups are urging South Carolina’s State Senate to reject attempts by the House of Representatives to penalize two colleges that assigned books with gay themes to incoming freshmen. This month the House moved to strip the College of Charleston of $52,000 in the state budget and the University of South Carolina-Upstate of about $17,000, citing concerns that the reading assignments were out of line with taxpayers’ values. The College of Charleston had assigned Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic, by Alison Bechdel, and the Upstate campus had chosen Out Loud: The Best of Rainbow Radio, edited by Candace Chellew-Hodge and Ed Madden.” (via Chronicle of Higher Education)
