KYCFA Made News in "The Atlantic Monthly"

Fred Thornhill ReutersKYCFA received a brief, but important mention in “The Atlantic Monthly” article “The Tall Task of Unifying Part-Time Professors,” by Kate Jenkins.


Ms. Jenkins writes:


For the upcoming day of action, at least one school, Seattle University, has organized a traditional walkout that over 100 faculty have pledged to participate in. But, by and large, “Walkout Day” may prove to be a misnomer; under some state laws governing unions and strikes, adjunct professors can’t actually walk out of classrooms without risking their jobs—so many campuses are organizing alternative activities instead. A community college in Kentucky is planning a teach-in, and some schools in the City University of New York and State University of New York systems are planning other non-walkout events. There is also talk of “grade-ins,” in which adjuncts gather to work in public places to raise awareness about their lack of office space.


Please read the rest of the article here, and our most sincere thanks to Ms. Jenkins for taking the time and making the effort to report so thoroughly on all the efforts to win equality for our members and teachers everywhere.
