Basking for Trouble — A Reply to the Previous Post

Faculty members and other personnel are certainly entitled to their opinion and their vote, however it is far more productive and conducive to take a moral stand on issues that are concrete.

What about moral courage that fights for work loads that are not only manageable and appropriate, but geared towards helping our students learn?  How about academic freedom that enables teachers to formulate modes of inquiry that will encourage critical development over measures that are only valuable for their expediency?  How about taking a moral stand for future students, who will serve to benefit from the adoption of all [of the] Work Load Task Force recommendations, and not just those that help colleges save money?

Take a moral stand that counts, not one that grants the colleges more authority to control, coerce, and cajole.
