Not changing my mind – though some rankings may be really useful when it comes to universities. As this insecurity ranking.
Now it would be the next task to look at an overall ranking that takes insecurity on a national level, performance in research and teaching and social quality into account. At least there is good reason to believe in what we read:
Nearly half of university teaching staff are on insecure contracts – a scenario that is sure to shock university students and is far worse than universities will own up to,” said Sally Hunt, UCU general secretary, adding that this job insecurity was likely to “compromise” their ability to teach or research.
Equally remarkable is the fact that these scenarios are considered as world leading model of and for third level education.
