    Is there academic freedom, and is the educational system free from extensive political indoctrination? Are teachers and professors at both public and private institutions free to pursue academic activities of a political and quasi-political nature without fear of physical violence or intimidation by state or nonstate actors? Does the government pressure, strongly influence, or control the content of school curriculums for political purposes? Is the allocation of funding for public educational institutions free from political manipulation? Are student associations that address issues of a political nature allowed to function freely? Does the government, including through school administration or other officials, pressure students and/or teachers to support certain political figures or agendas, including by requiring them to attend political rallies or vote for certain candidates?
