Dean Dad makes me retch

Link.

My comment:

Dean Dad celebrates that after such a long hard slog, adjunctification means that administrators are in demand. That's a tragedy, not something to crow about. As a member of one of those lowly "Gen X and Gen Y cohorts [who] have been fighting for scraps for so long," forgive me for not extending a high-five. At least Dean Dad is honest and consistent; previous posts have argued for adjunctification on economic grounds; now he argues that eviscerating a generation of scholars is good because it benefits his group, the administrators.


Dean Dad, how about the jump from the adjunct ranks to administration? I know how to take "the leap." Get an EdD from an online university and get hired as a "director of institutional effectiveness" to figure out ways to get good teaching out of underpaid, no-benefits adjuncts. To think that more people weren't attracted to the "dark side" before!
