MLA Condemns Violence against Teachers and Students in Mexico

The Executive Council approved the following statement in March 2015.

In its 2009 Statement on Academic Freedom, the Modern Language Association recognized that “despite a long history of the defense of academic freedom, each generation of scholars faces new challenges to its protection.” The recent murders and disappearances of students and teachers in Mexico, and the threats against others in the fields of education, have created an environment in which learning and critical thinking are deemed dangerous activities. In keeping with its commitment to supporting academic freedom, the MLA condemns the violence against students and teachers in Mexico.
