As a professional academic advisor–my only job being to care about the things the quote below indicates no one cares about–I’m a little offended.
So now, Coleman asked, what next? In general, students aren’t studying enough; faculty members aren’t demanding enough of students; administrators aren’t paying attention to student learning outcomes; and the federal government isn’t awarding grant money to figure out why students aren’t learning, even as it calls for more completion
On the other hand, I know I haven’t seen a lot of government money being thrown at the work I do. And though I don;t hear it as much any more, I run out of fingers when trying to tally the number of professors I heard complain through my undergrad that they had no time to research or perform (I was a music major) because the department actually expected them to teach classes. Where does the “publish or perish” reality factor in to this equation?
