Knee Jerk 6/9/20

The problem with both of these (and a couple of other ideas that I’ve read) is that they are knee-jerk reactions to a very serious flaw in our system that has been festering since, well, frankly since the Constitution was written. Passing legislation so quickly means that much will be overlooked. These are “feel good” resolutions, but either go too far or are simply surface level modifications failing to seek out and address the root problems.

Reboot 6/4/20

like the adjunct position, it is a “long-term” part-time temporary position. That means low pay (but probably more than I’m making teaching), and no benefits. Of course. And I’ve been in a position in the past where I’ve worked two part-time jobs, and the reality is that two part-time jobs do not equal one full-time job.
