Yes, it does ~ or should. Make it so now. First, sign (of course) and then spread the word. Share on social media. Re-blog. RT. Send it to all your email groups. We’ve got a lot of numbers to round up by the end of May. ICYMI here’s the petition copy:
Adjunct educators teach many of the classes that are the foundation of higher learning, and are often the first professors a student has at college. They have the same education and experience as tenure-track professors, and the same student loan debt, but usually make less than half of what their full-time, tenure-track colleagues make. Including adjuncts in the Loan Forgiveness Program would give them the ability to keep making a difference in education while offering a way out of crippling debt in a poor job market. Adjuncts who teach 4 or more courses at qualifying institutions per academic year for 10 years, and who would qualify if full-time, should receive the same loan forgiveness as their full-time colleagues.
