Thornton P. Knowles On Academic Tenure

Creative writing professor Martin Russ, in his 1980 classic, Showdown Semester, wrote: "The tenured professor is never forced to justify his classroom work to his students, and can go on for year after year in a take-it-or-leave-it way in which, arrogance overrides the kind of teaching that has to do with helping, sharing, giving." Having spent a few years in academia myself, I'm in total agreement with Professor Russ.
