I Despise/Admire Their Honesty

February 17, 2012

From this job posting (bolds mine):

Job Summary: Lecturer in History, starting fall semester 2012. Provide excellent customer service.

Job Responsibilities: Candidate will teach HIST 1301 and HIST 1302, Texas A&M University -Kingsville’s U.S. History undergraduate surveys. Teaching load will be five classes per semester.

Here’s how I read this: Please your students or else. Excellence, assessment, and scholarship are secondary here. We are a third-rate institution that depends on tuition for our survival.

Sweet. – TL
