Hundreds of UC Berkeley lecturers fear losing jobs. Funny. My sympathy meter isn't working.

https://www.sfchronicle.com/bayarea/article/Hundreds-of-UC-Berkeley-lecturers-fear-losing-jobs-15276583.php
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
More than 750 lecturers at UC Berkeley fear for their jobs after the university expanded its hiring freeze.

Lecturers with six years or less of experience on campus originally were exempt from the hiring freeze announced April 1. But UC Berkeley officials subsequently revised the terms of the freeze to include those lecturers...

Ya know many people are going to realize: what you get from these universities are just not worth paying for.

3. There are excellent online courses with material already prepared

For example, the mass Intro to Computer Science for Freshmen course can be:
https://www.edx.org/course/introduction-to-computer-science-and-programming-7
and
https://www.edx.org/course/introduction-to-computational-thinking-and-data-4

These are two excellent courses from MIT by great professors.

All you need is staff to answer student questions, track progress, and administer tests to ensure students have done the work and understood the content. There is no need to prepare or deliver lectures.
