Since the ’80s politicians have slashed funding for higher education.
Desperate to keep the doors open, universities hired high-priced executive administrators who turned college into big business. They hiked tuition, cut tenure track positions and decreased faculty pay, all while pocketing handsome paychecks. The result is a rigged system where only a select few get access to a quality education and too many educators live in poverty.
That’s why faculty, graduate student workers, students and families are coming together for change. We’re demanding that in America everyone has access to education and that all educators receive fair pay and stable work.
