Addendum

In the previous post, I might have made it sound like few professors are openly confronting the problems facing universities.  This isn’t the case: not only have the best books on university decay been written by academics (Chris Newfield, Frank Donoghue, Mark Bousquet, and Louis Menand, among others), but plenty of progressive younger professors–including ones with tenure–are speaking up eloquently.  Trouble is, nobody in a position to change things listens.
