Mary S. Erbaugh remarks:

Creating a two class system for faculty pushes us even farther toward
"Kentucky Fried Education". It is bad for teachers, bad for research,
and bad for students. The students, of course, are often left out of
the discussion entirely.

**Could students not make sure that they are not left out of the discussion
by realising their power and having their unions threaten class actions
against the universities for "false advertising". In many cases,
universities publish their calendars to attract students and give the
impression that if they enroll in a certain department, they will be taught
by the listed department members when, in actual fact, often they will see
neither hide nor hair of any them during the period of their degree.
