Yes, another article about the higher education bubble, focusing on the tenure system:
Tenured and tenure-track professors earn most of the money and benefits, but they’re a minority at the top of a pyramid. Nearly two-thirds of all college teachers are non-tenure-track adjuncts…. It is foolish that graduate programs are pumping new Ph.D.’s into a world without decent jobs for them.
To borrow a line from the article, “Ready to grab that pitchfork yet?”
