Patricia Schechter on Possible PSU Faculty Strike

program date: 
Mon, 03/31/2014
Bill Resnick talks with History Professor Patricia Schechter of Portland State University's faculty union, the American Association of University Professors, about why faculty are ready to strike after 10 months of bargaining. They discuss faculty stability, pay equity, and educator-led education and the importance of broad and lifelong learning and the liberal arts, as against administration focus on the needs of short-term business profit. Both students and faculty are in economically untenable positions, with mounting pressures and mounting debt. But students and faculty are in solidarity in supporting each other and the need for lifelong learning.
