Adjunct reality

Posted on: September 7, 2019

Ha, ha. We get the in-jokes in this tweet.

As you move from being schooled to being educated to being an educator, you experience harsh realities. But the realities are harsher.

An adjunct educator is not likely to get benefits like leave, insurance, or the equivalent of Medisave and CPF.

An adjunct is likely to be paid below market rate and not benefit from annual or other logical periodic increments.

An adjunct is likely to do some work effectively for free, e.g., attend meetings, provide consultations, grade papers.

An adjunct is likely to be highly qualified, skilled, and/or experienced, but none of those factor into renumeration spreadsheets.

The reality is less funny and not represented in a tweet. The reality are claims and observations that should be examined and addressed. The reality is that very little will happen.
