"Professors in Poverty • BRAVE NEW FILMS" (My New Liked Vid on YouTube) [VID]

Professors in Poverty • BRAVE NEW FILMS

"Meet Dr. Wanda Evans-Brewer. She has been teaching for 20 years, has a bachelor’s degree, a master’s degree, and a PhD in Education. She is also living in poverty. SUBSCRIBE: http://bit.ly/1JUX3Xv Today Professors in Poverty premieres at a Congressional briefing calling on politicians, colleges and universities to priorities adjunct professors and the quality of higher education in America now. And thanks to hundreds of small contributions Professors in Poverty is now available online for all to see. The corporate model of higher education is pushing professors into poverty and this model is a disaster. More than half of college faculty are adjunct – or part-time - professors. College tuition is rising at twice the rate of inflation. By hiring more adjuncts and less tenure track professors, colleges and universities are diminishing the quality of education for students and professors. Adjunct professors have limited access to resources like technology, office space, resources and they receive no benefits. 1 in 4 part-time faculty receive public assistance 31% if part-time faculty live near or below the poverty line $22,500 is the average salary of adjunct professors 60% of part-time professors have additional jobs Any professor living in poverty is unacceptable – especially when you consider the rising cost of tuition and the amount of money colleges and universities are taking in. This is wrong. Sign the petition demanding that colleges and universities prioritize adjunct professors now! This petition will be delivered to a Congressional briefing in late October on the issue of professors living in poverty. Join the movement in solidarity with adjunct professors everywhere!
