U. of Missouri wins syllabus lawsuit
- The National Council on Teacher Quality's public records lawsuit against the University of Missouri, in which the advocacy group sought to have the school release copies of syllabi under state open records laws, was rejected by a Boone County Circuit Court judge.
- The council wanted the syllabi as part of its campaign to oversee what teachers are taught in college, but the university maintained that the documents were intellectual property protected under federal copyright law.
- The ruling was revealed to university employees via an e-mail from system President Tim Wolfe last week.
