Look for the Union Label Week in Higher Education

Look for the Union Label Week in Higher Education

Your weekly report on campus news.

Has higher education been improved by the introduction of unionization for grad student teachers? Now is a good time to ask this question.

Meanwhile, the antics at Syracuse continue.

This foolishness puts people at risk.

Virtue signaling over politics.

Coronavirus on campus.

Climate change madness.

What will this accomplish?

Interesting plan.

Well OK then.

U Washington has now moved all classes on all three of their campuses to online-only for the rest of the winter term (as has Stanford and other schools in the upper west). My niece reports that few were showing up to classes anyway, so the school was faced with figuring out how to hold class when everyone was staying away.

The parents group is saying kids who lived locally were already gone and lots of parents were booking flights to get their kids out this weekend–including us. We moved our husky’s flight up 11 days, as soon as it became certain that her symphony concert next Friday was cancelled. There was no reason to stay.

The question parents are now asking is what the school will do on March 30th when the spring quarter starts. It’s hard to believe that the situation won’t be the same or worse. I’m expecting many students to suspend their enrollment until the fall. Other parents are grumbling about the school remaining online-only when the next term starts. They don’t want to pay full tuition for an online only class, nor do they want to send their kids back to the dorms if there is an epidemic on campus.

    “Forced” to do it ALL Online – without any choice?

    Let me play devil’s advocate.

    If you have to do it that way, why not just permanently shut those institutions down – and save Million$? There are thousands of other universities with online classes, that are most likely a heck of a lot cheaper

    Maybe we are beyond “free education” and institutions should literally have to “pay” students to have to “put up” with them.

    Of course if those “teaching interns” have really learned their lessons, they’d just start a “real job” in the real BOOMING Economy.

Wicked Headline there Mike!

I like it!

Oberlin College planning to lay off 108 employees in its dining services and custodial departments in order to obtain vendor-provided contract services is a symptom of the college’s effort to cut costs as it faces deficit spending, the college announced Tuesday.
