As colleagues and students of Professor Ana Candela we are deeply dismayed at the attacks upon her by Fox news and the failure of the SUNY-Binghamton administration to support her. Dr. Candela recognizes as we do that our classroom discussions are often dominated by a minority of persons reflecting societal class, racial and gender inequalities.  Our lives and education take place within and are reproduced by limited choices and experiences. Many of our students all too often feel marginalized, and discussions are constrained and limited as a result. We should not pretend otherwise. Good teachers encourage students to engage and challenge these inequalities. 

If we are to open up the doors of education, and sustain lively interchanges and vibrant analysis, we need more Professors like Dr. Candela. Rather than admonish her as the SUNY-Binghamton administration has done, we celebrate and endorse her ability to foster a more equitable classroom and university.
