Bad moon risin’.

Inside Higher Ed reports that the Kentucky Community and Technical College’s Board of Regents is voting today on the elimination of the tenure system for all new hires.

“Over the past few years, there’s been a growing imposition of the corporate business model in higher education,” Brazell said. “It simply looks at personnel as a cost and lower cost is an urgent goal right now. That’s what’s driving interest here in terrible economic times. But, the elimination of tenure does not save money, will not lower cots for students and will have an impact on the system’s hiring flexibility. People just won’t come to work here.”

    mmm, lard. I don’t get why truffle-flavored-lard-soaked kebabs wouldn’t be neo-Tuscan gold.
