Ain’t education coupled with unregulated capitalism just grand? /s…
Shoes on the other foot these days….and that’s a good thing!
That’ll teach him! Huh, Cornell PhD indeed! :D
They did it to themselves with unbridled arrogance and contempt for anyone not at “their” level.
Last I heard, college faculty was treated with more reverence in Europe. Though maybe that’s changed to this cutthroat model by now. This strip should also show adjunct faculty, cleaning toilets or some such.
Been there. Done that. Waiting for the next opportunity.
I would not knock teaching assistants; I miss the years I was one at Penn State.
Raise tuition, dorm fees, food plan; lower teacher pay, have a huge endowment, pay the football coach more than the president, make students indebted for years after graduation. Aren’t universities supposed to be loftier than run of the mill robber barons?
I like the term, “gypsy faculty”.
What is “intro bio”?
How about outsourcing teaching to India? Maybe we’d learn to understand people at “customer service”.
Good thing that they are not filling technical jobs. They wouldn’t hire that kid (not enough experience) and would expect that PhD to accept the lowball deal that the kid would accept – AND expect the PhD to be grateful for the “opportunity”…
