Law students are being given the option to leave the classroom when crime is discussed.
This latest example of “safe space” culture is being introduced by Oxford University in order to shield squeamish students from “potentially distressing” content.
The PC curse is also spreading beyond Oxford’s law department. One bemused English student recalled how she was among students that – during a discussion of a poem containing a racial slur – were told they could “leave the room before it was read out or cover it up on the page”.
Once upon a time, university prepared you for the world of work – now all it does is preach the virtues of being wrapped in cotton wool.
