Kuchera, Michael E.; Miller, Steven I.
Sociology of Education, v61 n4 p240-54 Oct 1988
Reports on a study of social-psychological effects of the declining academic labor market on 515 adjunct faculty members teaching in two-year community colleges in Illinois and Wisconsin. Concludes that the poorer one's perception of opportunity in the full-time market, the less satisfied one will be with the adjunct role and the less time one will spend on the job. (GEA)
