An Adjunct Speaks His Truth

Adjunct Joe Fruscione speaks eloquent, bitter truth about the burden of being adjunct and the possibility of leaving the profession. His story personalizes the myth of the adjunct. So many of us know this truth. The question is, what viable, reasonable options are there for him? But another, deeper question is what would it be like to leave? Fruscione contemplates that it would be “bittersweet.” I wonder how many times in life we actually experience that emotion? If you’re an adjunct, you live it.
