After Keyishian, the primary focus of Academic freedom litigation shifted from external attempts at control to internal conflicts. The Supreme Court has recognized that Academic freedom, at times, involves a somewhat inconsistent and fundamental tension between educators who desire uninhibited, independent freedom in teaching and institutions that want autonomous decision making over their educational programs and campus activities.
