* Amen: Awash in NCATE

|Help! What does this have to do with college teaching? |
"Cheaper schools" just pile this enormous task on top of everything else college instructors must do, no extra compensation; in our case - - no extra manpower/personpower at all.
We had one new, struggling- for- tenure instructor who burned out, suffered from chronic fatigue sydrome and quit/was fired: she alone was expected to do the work and file for NCATE cerification for her program. Now, once again we have a single person in various MA programs who is doing all the advising, registering, admissions, graduation checks, teaching their own courses, etc AND having to do NCATE.
