If your kids attend a college or university — or if you do — you need to read this book.
Sixty to eighty percent of college instructors are not professors at all. They’re underpaid, often marginally qualified part-time adjuncts. In the brave new world of academe, few American students get what they pay for when they arrive at college. Meanwhile, graduate programs churn out thousands of would-be college faculty with master’s and doctoral degrees, few of whom ever land full-time jobs in higher ed.
Full-time faculty are systematically being replaced by part-timers with no office, no computer, no phone, no insurance, no retirement, no representation, and sub-minimum wage pay.
This book explains the consequences, short- and long-term, of replacing professors with part-timers and chronicles one adjunct’s semester in America’s largest community college district.
