Outsourcing Education

Here's a new spot for this week's Village Voice. The article by Neil deMause (which you can read here) is about how most colleges' instructors are only part-time adjuncts rather than full-time professors. This leaves them with significantly lower wages, virtually no job security or benefits, and can impact the students.
The wonderful Jesus Diaz at the Village Voice wanted a piece that emphasized the instability of the adjuncts' jobs and how they're being exploited by the colleges.

While I would've been more than happy doing any one of the sketches, the third, where the adjunct is dropped through a trap door in the classroom floor in the middle of a lesson, was chosen.

Thanks again to Jesus for a fun gig!
