Readers Write: Teacher/Scholar/Activist: A Response to Keith Kroll’s “The End of the Community College English Profession”
Jeffrey T. Andelora
Abstract: In this response I offer a counternarrative to Keith’s dystopian vision and challenge some of his assumptions about the state of our profession. My alternate view notwithstanding, I fully agree with Kroll on more than a few points, not the least of which is the need for more faculty voices to join this conversation at the local and national levels.
