Those fresh out of uni have yet to see the executive suite cut back on (or eliminate) quality assurance because it's "too costly" and it "slows down development".
Amazing how many managers think you can save time by cutting quality isn't it? (Because what I see happen pretty much every time is it would have been quicker just to do it right the first time. You end up having to repeatedly fix the half-ass version until you get a working version.)
When you think of people who teach at a college, you probably imagine moderately affluent professors with nice houses and cars.
You must be thinking of a different institute than I do. Professors don't teach, they're too busy doing their real job of research. The teaching is done by adjuncts and grad students.
Others point to the corporatization of universities, which are increasingly inclined to hire part-time, 'adjunct' professors, rather than full-time, tenure-track ones, to teach undergrads.
This is from the Modern Language Association? Hell when I was an undergrad 20+ years ago they didn't have professors teach language courses. That was done by wet behind the ears grad students in charge of classes of 15-20 students.(Oh and it didn't seem like it was a new thing.) I know, I know. The language professors couldn't do it because they were too busy with research. You know, if you're a Spanish prof well you have to do that research of eating Serrano ham in Spain or maybe you're a French prof. Damn it, you can't teach, you've got to drink your coffee by the Seine river, oops I mean do research.
