  •  They got rid of tenure already (6+ / 0-)

    That's what the diary is about.

    The latest figures are that 30% of faculty are full-time.

    I suppose when that number is reduced to 10%, we may still be arguing about tenure.

    By the way, at one top university I've been to, getting rid of tenure meant the twisted admin. could fire the critics in the humanities blasting them for their corporatist approach. Now, more than ever, tenure matters, and the fact that only 25% of the faculty have it shows that there is a real leadership problem.

    There are two kinds of people in this world. The kind who divide the world into two kinds of people, and the kind who don't.
