For-Profit Ills & HigherEd

Sometimes I'm not quite sure what to make of the Grey Lady's current rush of attention to higher ed issues, even though the "spotlight" includes adjunct issues. Is the coverage, imperfect as it can be, beneficial, misleading or somehow both? I suspect the interest has more to do with readers' having college age children, rising college costs and getting their money's worth than any thirst for justice and equity in the academic workplace.

"Marc Bousquet, who blogs for The Chronicle of Higher Education, worries in his latest post that the harsh federal spotlight currently illuminating the excesses of for-profit colleges is missing similar problems at nonprofit institutions."
