Study: Over Half of Universities in UK Actively Censor Speech | Truth Revolt

The battle for free speech on campus is certainly not limited to the United States. A new study out of the UK has found that over half of the country’s universities are actively censoring student speech. In its fourth annual report, the Free Speech University Rankings (FSUR) conducted by Spiked surveyed 115 UK schools and published these results:
55 percent of universities now actively censor speech, 39 percent stifle speech through excessive regulation, and just six percent are truly free, open places.

The study also found that the "severity of restrictions seems to be increasing."

"In some of our most esteemed universities, supposed citadels of free thinking and scientific endeavour, administrations are demanding that debate about transgenderism be shut down and courses be cleansed of un-PC material," writes Spiked's deputy editor Tom Slater. "We also found that 48 per cent of institutions have policies which warn against insulting faith groups or offending religious sensibilities."
