on the future of education in general, universities in particular

…time enough for the present tomorrow…for now, a range of views on the future of education. Like it or not, the present will still be here when we wake up: Union County College in NJ stalling for over a year on negotiations with adjuncts; Northern NM College, still behaving badly (worse actually); adjuncts organizing but not everywhere; contracts approved, for better or for worse; the AFT Contingent Faculty Caucus, a welcome reality; in California, AB 2705 moves to the Senate and contingent faculty closer to being renamed, losing the problematic part-time designation. Maybe the DoL will take the and follow suit.
