College faculty shifts towards low paid adjuncts, while tuition climbs

I don’t think that most students or their parents realize that, while tuition costs have been climbing at a pace that far outstrips inflation, there has also been a dramatic shift from full time faculty to low–paid adjuncts. I weigh in on the matter in my latest National Review blog post, and include links to interesting analysis by Tom Lindsay and the original Nation article by Michelle Chen.
