Maricopa Community College system relying more on adjunct instructors

The Arizona Republic
For the 140,000 students who are taking community-college classes this fall, chances are good that the person at the front of the room is a part-time teacher rather than a full-time professor.

The proportion of part-time, or adjunct, faculty at the Maricopa Community Colleges has increased steadily over the last five years and this semester will likely surpass the 82 percent reached in the 2010-11 school year, district officials say. Part-time teachers made up 73 percent of the total in 2006-07.
