IN CASE YOU MISSED IT -- September's most popular story was Scott Jaschik's coverage of a major study finding that new students at Northwestern University learn more when their instructors are off the tenure track than when they're tenure-track professors. (A Views essay by Edward Kazarian offered a critique of the study.) Many readers found it a sad irony that in the same month we published Colleen Flaherty's article on a newspaper column about an adjunct instructor who died sick, alone and penniless, the column went viral as adjuncts across the country reported seeing something tragically familiar in her story. Colleen's faculty beat was chock full of great material as the academic year got under way -- stories included a professor's offer to help "students of color only"; a professor's (possibly overly) candid blog post titled "If You Want To Be My Student"; and a professor suspended from teaching after making anti-Republican remarks to a class. Ry Rivard's article on severa prestigious liberal arts colleges whose credit ratings have been downgraded or assigned a negative outlook by Moody’s Investors Service also topped the charts last month (we'll assume it wasn't just the schadenfreude).
