This showcases how academia is choking itself. Not allowing young PhDs to become good teachers and learn about philosophy beyond some intensely narrow range of literature, the profession has rewarded hyperspecialization and narrow unilluminating publication.

There more I learn from my first semester students, the more I think needs a bootcamp for college. More than 1/2 said they underestimated the load & their time management was poor. Are there any universities that have a summer prep program?

Thank God, Sydney Uni is positively THICK with it. I was happily immersed in Plato, Aristotle, the Salamanca school, Grotius, Spinoza, Hobbes, Kant, Hume, Smith, etc., etc., right up to Schmitt, Arendt, Korsgaard, Benhabib and Habermas there. Heaven!

Here are the Australia's top 10 universities for 'estimated' FTE casual staff based on latest staff data. Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education had 1500 casual staff in 2018?!? That is a 1500% increase on its 1 FTE casual in 2017.

Wow. Page 1 already is loaded with bad grammar and problems that make this read like a high school paper. Truly embarrassing that passes such people based on such poor work. Setting her identity aside, how do such people meet graduation 🎓 requirements?

Two recent books that provide perspective on American higher education: David Labaree, A Perfect Mess (U Chicago) and Jason Owen-Smith., Research Universities and the Public Good (Stanford UP). Correctives to one-sided critiques. ,. Lots of challenges, lots of success.
