Still Getting it Wrong: From Polytechnics to Political Dependence

A year has passed since the Post Secondary Education Commission released its report which, amongst other things, suggested UNBSJ and NBCC-SJ should dissolve in favor of a new Polytechnic Institute. Thanks to overwhelming support from the community UNBSJ and NBCC-SJ remain, but that is not to say their autonomy and academic freedom are safe.

In this clip Jim Turk, one of the many public voices you may remember from last year's demonstrations, presents his thoughts and reflections on the most recent developments in this ongoing issue. Dr Turk is the Executive Director of the Canadian Association of University Teachers.
