An interesting article in the New York Review of Books talks about the money game in higher education, and has several interesting things to say about the 'endangered species' of higher education, the liberal arts college. My favourite point is the one it makes about the irony that, as the quality of tenured professor goes up at a university, the quality of teaching goes down, because all the good professors negotiate lower workloads, leaving the teaching to adjuncts.
