Sorry for the title, but
is yet another in a series of *STUPID* reports on higher education. Complain about how education is necessary for American competitiveness, yadda, yadda, yadda.
Not a single word about *hiring more college teachers* or the fact that colleges are creating a vast oversupply of educated individuals. No…. We’ll just have robots teach people.
Sorry for the frustration, but it just annoys the hell out of me to see such supposedly smart people out of touch with reality. Talking yadda, yadda, yadda about the need to expand higher education while at the same time 80% of physics Ph.D.’s can’t find a tenure track position in academia.
Just once I’d like to see one of these blue ribbon panels with someone who is going through graduate school *hell* or junior faculty *hell*.
