    This book is an insider’s account of the current state of Australia’s universities. It paints a picture of a system driven by the balance sheet, administered by a mindless and mean-spirited bureaucracy, adrift in a mire of pedagogical pap peddled by Educationalists.   Here we look at the working conditions you can expect to find in the FE sector as a teacher, lecturer or tutor.

You must notify the Alien Registration Office if you take up this type of work.
