On the Creation of MITx
To The Faculty Newsletter:
Here we are with another major directive from the top down. Apart from whether or not this is a good idea, what has happened to the idea of open debate in a faculty meeting? Does the administration really believe that it has all the answers?
There is a broader issue at stake then just MITx. Has the faculty completely lost any control of academic decisions?
This is a different MIT.
