Editor’s Note: This essay and the one by Daniel Kaufman that follows it deal in large part with the City University of New York. The authors of both have been adjunct professors in that large university system and they both agree on its limitations. The editors feel that it may be constructive to contrast the reactions of the two authors to the conditions in which they teach.
