Read from February 05 to 18, 2011

Rojstaczer's overview of the modern college life is a bit dated, but rings true. Of course, the view available to him used to be available to only the smallest number of elite academics, but that's his whole point. The "glamorous" world of education is no more, and what is left is a mess of politics, a glut of graduate students avoiding the weak labor market and the ever-shrinking job pool, and the role of "professor" taking third-fiddle to a mass of research and administrative expectations. Very much worth a read to those entering undergraduate education in order to become a professor...you may change your mind.
