Project Censored – 04.12.16

A last-minute agreement has forestalled a planned faculty strike at the California State University system, the largest higher-education system in the U.S. Peter Phillips, a CSU professor himself, speaks with four other faculty members about academic labor issues, at CSU and nationwide: Jennifer Eagan teaches Philosophy at CSU, and is President of the California Faculty Association, the CSU professors’ union. Andy Merrifield teaches Political Science, Nick Baham teaches Ethnic Studies; both are also CFA officeholders. Nolan Higdon teaches History at multiple campuses; he describes the life of a “road scholar.”
The California State University system has 23 campuses, 26,000 faculty, and over 450,000 students.

This program was recorded on April 8, shortly after the tentative agreement was reached, and days before the one-week faculty strike would have begun.

Mickey Huff will return in two weeks.
