Northwestern's response to Zimmerman & Wong's letters (unacknowledged)

The Northwestern ran this editorial today, which seems to be in some ways a more measured commentary after Rieckman's rant yesterday.

It acknowledges that there are subtleties in the legal cases before the UW system, but repeats the myth of vacation pay for faculty members.

As I suggested yesterday, they continue to misunderstand higher education, claiming it is just like the "private sector."

They end by calling for an independent investigation--will in make the critics happy when they report that every university in the country sets things up in a similar way? I doubt it.

Summer to forget doesn’t have to be UW System legacy
