Taking back The New School!

Update!: below is an archival story from Dec, 18, 2008. There was another student occupation on Friday, April 10, 2009. It was ended about 1pm today with riot police. (The students still want Bob Kerrey OUT as President of the school.) More about the April 10th events: here.

New School Faculty Votes No Confidence in Kerrey

Published: December 10, 2008

Bob Kerrey, the Vietnam veteran and former Nebraska governor and senator known for his acerbic tongue and iconoclastic tendencies, was handed an overwhelming vote of no-confidence on Wednesday afternoon by the senior faculty at the New School, the Greenwich Village university he has run since 2001.

Mr. Kerrey has clashed with some professors since the day of his appointment as the New School’s president, with complaints that he lacks a Ph.D. and that his politics — particularly his early support for the Iraq war — were too moderate for the unabashedly liberal campus…
