Adjuncts, Assumptions Activism
Increasingly, it seems the appeal is being made to tenured to stand up for adjuncts. In my union local, and at my campus, there is an attitude that adjuncts need to step up more. I agree with that. But, until tenured begin prioritizing adjunct issues, until they begin seeing adjunct issues as tenured issues, tenure will continue to die. It is dying. We must band together, as the Unarmed Education Mercenary points out, all parties, and refuse to accept any excuses. In solidarity we can demand and attain justice. If we can’t figure out how to resist, higher education is doomed.
