Was Marx an Adjunct? The Economics of Private Nontraditional Higher Education.
Block, Walter; Horton, Marshall
Texas Education Review, v1 n4 p43-46 Win 2001-2002
Demonstrates that the employment of adjunct faculty at institutions of higher education, particularly nontraditional colleges, should not be viewed as exploitative based on Marxist economics, suggesting that the economic worth of adjunct faculty is shaped by market forces, like all other professions. Rejects the demand that universities employ only full-time faculty. (SM)
