The U of A Faculty of Arts blog supports and quotes from the AU Faculty Association’s stand on the Alberta Enterprise & Advanced Education Ministry’s controversial “Letters of Expectation”:
“We should take their letter to heart.
“Its single most powerful sentence about the Government’s letter:
“‘The Letter, ultimately, is best understood as an attempt to justify the unjustifiable cut to the province’s postsecondary budget, a cut so deep – and made in one of the world’s richest jurisdictions – that it must be understood primarily as political, not financial.’
“The little university that could! Can we follow their lead?”
