One student (cum future department chair…) rushes to her aid:
Simi Wilhelm, chairwoman of the Graduate and Professional Student Assembly and a student in Penn’s Graduate School of Education, said she believes GET-UP leaders misinterpreted Gutmann’s academic works.
“What was talked about in [her writings on labor unions] and what [was] pursued at Penn are not the same thing,” Wilhelm said.
She added that Gutmann’s “support of a union in one context doesn’t translate to another.”
Of course not.
