Richardson, James T.
National Forum, v79 n1 p19-23 Win 1999
Discussion of the decline of tenure in American higher education looks at its origins, the structural fragmentation of higher education, trends in faculty job security and part-time employment, resulting competition for teaching jobs, and the general loss of academic freedom as a consequence. Article argues that American higher education must work quickly to re-establish academic freedom. (MSE)
