Letter: Adjunct professors get short shrift

Letter: Adjunct professors get short shrift

The pay is ludicrous — I’m teaching four courses in this spring semester for $10,000. For a typical class size of 20 students, that works out to a per course instructional cost of $125 per student, or $500-625 for a typical semester course load of 4-5 courses taught exclusively by adjuncts (and they do teach over one-third of the courses at New Paltz).
