Why Is College So Expensive if Professors Are Paid So Little? - 1 views

    " With a degree in creative writing, she's been working short-term teaching jobs since her 30s, often skirting poverty, never achieving the job security traditionally associated with academia.

College students are not customers: A political shorthand that needs to die. - 0 views

    "Legitimate research has determined that student evaluations of professors are biased, and so their "customer ratings" aren't fair. Legitimate research also indicates that while professorial popularity and effectiveness do overlap, one does not immediately signify or correlate with the other. Further, most students don't actually view themselves as customers, because they know how education works and actually want to get one."

    "Working 24/7 is not the only way to achieve success in academia. There, I've said it. A recent article described the working week of people across academia. This included the science professor who "compensates for the time he spends with his young children in the evening and at weekends by getting up before they do", and the early career researcher who "tries to take at least a half-day off a week". While many colleagues have similar working patterns and are happy (or at least not unhappy) working in this way, I am meeting increasing numbers of promising academics who reject it."
