What's Wrong With the American University System

another_fanboy Re:seems to be missing a few points (828 comments)

But he seems actually worried mainly about tenured professors who are doing good research, because they aren't paying enough attention to teaching. Good teachers need to exist, but so do good researchers--- the problem with today's university is not that there are too many good senior researchers. If anything, the opposite.

The problem is researchers and teachers get jumbled into the same mass when it comes to advertising. Having the best theoretical physicists doing research does nothing for an physics undergrad.
