Teachers' Rights, Academic Freedom, and the Teaching of Controversial Issues


by William C. Bagley — 1938

The author’s five fundamental theses are as follows: 1. What we call "human rights" are, almost always, social in their origin; 2. Each right is balanced by a corresponding duty; 3. Might does not make right, but might very distinctly makes rights—and might can unmake rights; 4. The concepts "right" and "rights" are not necessarily synonymous; 5. What the author believes to be right is what he conceives to promote social welfare and social progress.
