Professor cancels a course after university lowers his pay

What a mess. As Inside Higher Ed reports, one university professor was scheduled to teach a summer course but he

canceled a summer course after finding out that the university planned to prorate his salary based on low enrollment. …

“The issue is that I adamantly refuse to teach this course for less than full pay. Due to contractual restrictions based upon enrollment, I would have to agree to teach the course for a 43 percent decrease in salary. As any faculty member knows, it is as much effort to teach eight students as it is 15.”
