I'm signing because I've spent half of my life in higher ed and have seen it seemingly be on the wrong side of every possible position. Major changes must happen to protect the existing higher ed infrastructure of quality research, scholarship, and teaching. But more importantly, structural, foundational changes must take place in order for higher ed to meet its vital mission of accessible, world-class education. The status-quo is dangerous and inept. Corporatization is dangerous and incompetent. Bloated administrations and anemic government funding is dangerous and cruel. We can have a better system, a more competent system, a more just and equitable system. Education is society.
