The Adjunct Wars Continue

I've been an adjunct for the last 8 years and would like to comment on the idea of flexibility. I agree that the reason the original notion of "back fill" faculty was probably based on the need to be flexible--add more adjuncts when student populations rise and subtract adjuncts when they drop--but the reality is that today, most community colleges that I know of have gone way beyond using adjuncts for back fill tied to student population fluctuations--they now use adjuncts as cheap substitutes for full time faculty.
