  •  Would you please tell that to the dean (13+ / 0-)

    who told my husband he had to change grades or leave?  Because it looked a lot like he thought my husband worked for him.  Yes, there is academic freedom, and, yes, there is tenure.  But the school in question was already under censure from the AAUP, and the then president was, quite literally, insane.  And "insubordination" is a cause for firing even under tenure.

    And they'd already demoted me.  It was time to leave.  So we did.

    Five years after I chose my username, happily living somewhere else.

    •  Or tell that... (0+ / 0-)

      To the Dean who decided not to allow us to renew a grant and essentially fired 200 people (including more than 12 faculty members including myself) last month...

      Take it easy, but take it.
